Testing’s Gone, President Said; Can You Help?

THE PRESIDENT’S FERVENT HOPE – Following the temporary suspension Tuesday (Aug. 25, 2015) of mandatory tuberculosis testing for Pottsgrove School District volunteers, Board of School Directors’ President Justin Valentine issued a simple plea to parents and others who avoided being involved in school activities because of the testing cost. “Hopefully this year,” he said, “we’ll have a ton of volunteers.” Valentine also addressed critics who claimed the district administration had cooked up the testing requirement “in an effort to stifle volunteerism.” Pottsgrove officials, he said, “were just trying to interpret state law as they understood it. It’s not their fault this came up,” Valentine added.
