    • As of July, 23, 2012, the district has yet to make decisions regarding the high school facilities. The district’s intent is to begin drafting the process for a) updating the 2009 high school educational specifications document (required by Pennsylvania Dept. of Education), and b) designing the actual project. During the 2012-2013 school year, the district will collaborate with a board approved educational planner and design professional (architect) to draft a multi-year process that will be shared with the entire SCASD community prior to Board approval.
