School Board Voted to Authorize Purchase of Land
At the November 21, 2019 meeting of the PASD Board of School Directors, the Board voted to authorize the purchase of 29.5 acres of land located at 622 Hares Hill Road in East Pikeland Township.  The vote was 7-0 in favor of the land purchase (Board members Pattinson and Broker were absent).  The negotiated purchase price was $3.5 million on the $4.5 million appraised property.  This purchase is the culmination of months of work to identify and secure a property on which to construct an additional school building.

Prior to the vote, the Board held a Public Hearing on the purchase of this property.  Mr. Gibson, Director of Operations & Technology, presented a detailed outline of projected future enrollment, building capacity, the environmental testing completed on the property over the past year, and plans for the future.

Presentation to the Board -  Land Acquisition

The closing has been set for November 26, 2019.  The District will work with PASD staff, parents and the community to develop a project plan for this property.  Regular updates will be shared through Board meetings and on this site.
