Sarah, thank you for taking the time to investigate the proposed clustering. Its a well written article and it highlights several genuine concerns.

There are concerns with clustering and ancillary concerns about transportation. However Sarah made no mention of the academic results A-C and L-S have achieved. Derry Township also uses clustering. Those districts have the highest PSSA test scores in their counties. And right now, thanks to Bush's No Child Left Behind, public education is all about test scores.

President Bush will be out of office long before ground is broken on a new building. Shouldn't we be looking toward the future?

Isn't Sarah Kneller the person who had the solution for the Schaefferstown sewer issue? How did that work out?

Unfortunately, Sarah was given different information than Gordie Sheetz, the SEO, was given from Administration.

Are you trying to imply that SOS is NOT for the kids? You couldn't be farther from the truth.

Don't just take for granted that everything you hear from Board members and admin is the whole truth. Do some homework. It would be nice if you used your real name also.

And "real deal", are ELCO's PSSA scores not where they should be? There is room for improvement with anything, but I feel my children are getting a wonderful education at their community school. That's why we live here, not Manheim Twp, LS, etc.

Is your name really "Becca"???? LOL just kidding..

Hey did all of you know clustering is actually going to save us tax payers money especially on transportation? I think the board thinks we will hit our own oil well when they start excavating. We will have a mini market too ELCOGAS inc. Whens the IPO?

Yes, Sarah Kneller is the person that had the correct solution for the Schaefferstown School sewer issue. Among other questions, why not ask the school board why the student capacity was changed from the feasability study?
She's more qualified than anyone on the school board or in the administration to give an opinion. She just happens to be COMMUNITY SCHOOL EDUCATED (Schaefferstown Elementary circa. 80'S) and a registered licensed professional engineer with degrees in Architectual Engineering and Civil Engineering. When not practicing her profession as a project manager, she's a mother to a six month old son who plans to attend the COMMUNITY SCHOOL AT SCHAEFFERSTOWN, circa. 2010's.
