Second appraisal on center due this week

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A second appraisal on the Franklin County Career and Technology Center building should be submitted by the end of the week, according to Waynesboro Area School District Superintendent Barry Dallara.

This appraisal also includes 35 acres of land, Waynesboro board member Stanley Barkdoll said.

The Chambersburg Area School District had the land appraised when it proposed taking over ownership and control of the career center. Now, Barkdoll said the six school districts that run the school seem supportive of an alternate proposal that originated in Waynesboro.

That proposal would sell some of the property to Chambersburg for it to build an academic high school with a possible walkway connection to the vocational-education building.

District to increase contribution to LIU

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Area School District's contribution to the Lincoln Intermediate Unit for the 2008-09 school year will increase 4.4 percent, school officials said.


The school board approved the $1,268 increase at Tuesday's meeting.

The district had paid about $29,000 for the 2007-08 year, according to business administrator Caroline Dean.

Board member Stanley Barkdoll said the contribution depends on the number of students requiring LIU services in a given year and what those services are. The LIU operates the Franklin Learning Center and provides special-education services.
