The Northampton Area School District comprehensive plan has been approved.
NASD Board of Education voted 9-0 at its Oct. 22 meeting to approve the plan, on the recommendation of the administration.
“Our comprehensive plan is a plan put together by our district community,” said Lydia Hanner, NASD director of curriculum and instruction, when she reviewed the plan at the Sept. 24 school board meeting.
The five-year plan includes “an action plan — where we’ve been, where we’re going and concerns we have,” according to Hanner.
State Sen. Lisa Boscola, D-18th, recently announced a total of $130,902 in state grants to improve safety and security in area schools.
“These grant dollars will enable schools to fund safety programs, hire security personnel and purchase security-related equipment,” Boscola said. “I’m pleased with this round of funding and will continue to seek state support to help our school boards and administrators make our schools safer and more secure.”
