On Monday, December 5, 2016 the Spring-Ford Board of School Directors voted to enter the first phase of the Spring-Ford Area High School expansion project. The expansion project is the result of many public meetings held by the school board and district administration with parents, community members, teachers, principals, students and industry experts to address the needs of the growing arts and physical education programs.
As we continue in the initial phases of the Spring-Ford Area High School expansion project, we welcome your comments and questions. You can email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Residents are encouraged to attend monthly Property Committee Meetings and School Board meetings.
