Investigating the Possibilities of District Merger

October 19, 2018

During the joint board meeting between the Millersburg Area School District and the Upper Dauphin Area School District on October 18, 2018, the superintendents provided a high-level overview of “investigating the possibilities of district merger”. The presentation was a continuance of the conversation from the feedback received from the public meetings of the sports cooperative. The first step in this process is conducting a feasibility study. The boards unanimously directed the superintendents to research feasibility study vendors as well as speak with the leadership at the Pennsylvania Department of Education to determine their level of guidance and financial support for the merger concept.

The presentation powerpoint will be posted to both district websites as well as two additional guidance documents from the Pennsylvania Department of Education: Frequently Asked Questions and a Proposed Merger Study Timeline (Modeled from Center-Monaca Study Timeline). Additional information will be discussed and disseminated upon completion of the feasibility study. The districts will continue to include and inform stakeholders throughout this process.
