The tentative contract was presented at the February 11th meeting of School Directors. It will not be voted on until the Board’s March 11th meeting for transparency purposes.

Redistricting Committee Recommendations 

After months of work, the Elementary Redistricting Committee presented its recommendations to the School Board on February 11th.

In a 6-4 vote, the Committee recommended keeping all five QCSD elementary schools open and renovating Quakertown Elementary School.

Following the presentation and discussion, Superintendent Dr. Bill Harner requested that the Board approve the Committee's recommendations to maintain five elementary schools for next year at its March meeting. This will allow transition planning and the new school welcoming process to begin, providing the Administration time to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of the Committee’s remaining recommendations, and to give the Board ample time to reflect and deliberate on the other recommendations without creating uncertainty for families about 2021-22.
Here is the Committee's PowerPoint presentation.

The School Board video with this discussion begins at 42:45.
