Waynesboro School Board approves trip to China

WAYNESBORO, Pa.— The Waynesboro Area School Board has given the green light for the district’s high school students studying business to visit China next year.

The board approved it as a non-sanctioned trip during a meeting Tuesday.

That means the school district will excuse the absence from Nov. 22 to Dec. 3, 2013, but the trip to China will not be sanctioned, according to board Vice President Chris Lind.

Waynesboro’s educational trip to China will be with the Chambersburg Area School District, which is also treating the trip as a non-sanctioned trip.


Students can participate in fundraisers for the $3,477-per-student cost of the trip.

Waynesboro School Board approves bus study

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — The Waynesboro Area School Board has authorized spending $10,800 for a study of its transportation routes.

The study will be conducted by the Pennsylvania Association of Business Officials of Harrisburg, Pa., over the next 60 days.

“They tell us if they can cut one bus route it could save the district $50,000,” board President Edward Wilson said at a meeting Tuesday.

Wilson said nothing has been done with the routes for years.
