CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Sophomore and juniors from the Chambersburg Area School District who attend the Franklin County Career and Technology Center will attend the center all year for both career and academic classes in 2006-07, but the Chambersburg School Board voted to allow this year's seniors to attend one semester at the high school.
The decision was a change from the all-year, all-day plan the district had proposed and which many parents and students had raised objections to at a public meeting Monday night. While the Class of 2007 will be able to attend Chambersburg Senior High School for one semester, however, that will not be the case in future years.
"Very disappointed," parent Tina Sanders said of the vote. Monday night her son Andy, who is entering his junior year, said the all-day, all-year plan would prevent career center students from seeing their high school classmates during the school year and segregate them from the school.
