WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Several members of the Waynesboro School Board said they plan to attend tonight's Chambersburg School Board meeting to hear a presentation on that district's plans for the future of the Franklin County Career and Technology Center.
"I'm not going to miss that meeting for anything," said Stanley Barkdoll, the vice president of the Waynesboro School Board and one of the district's representatives on the career and technology center's Joint Operating Committee.
The presentation will be made by Dr. Thomas Winters, a former state deputy secretary of education hired by Chambersburg to study three options being considered by the district.
One option would be to create a comprehensive vocational school involving all six districts that participate in the career and technology center. Currently, the Waynesboro, Greencastle-Antrim, Tuscarora, Fannett-Metal and Shippensburg school districts send students there for vocational training only, while this year Chambersburg began sending its students there for both vocational and academic instruction.
