School district says more parking most popular request for new land purchase

Local News

Wednesday night the Penns Valley Area School District met with parents to hear how they think the school district should use land they bought last year.

In March 2018, the school district purchased one hundred and seventeen acres which borders the elementary school, intermediate school and high school, for one point two million dollars

The school district met with parents last month at a meeting, and they say “more parking” has been the biggest request.

“Currently on both sides of route 45, we have four hundred parking spots,” Brian Griffith, Superintendent for the Penns Valley School District, said.  “We have facilities at our high school that can hold an excess of twelve hundred people, so we don’t have adequate parking.”

Supertindentent Griffith says the school district is also talking about the possiblity of improving the safety and access to their buildings as well as adding athletic fields.

The school district could vote on a decision as early as their next board meeting on April 17th.
