Bob Doran started this petition to Neshaminy School District Board President Marty Summivan and

This petition is to implore the Neshaminy School Board to address the need for, and to approve the installation of, turf fields at Neshaminy High School.

Neshaminy High School is established as one of the best high schools in Pennsylvania and the country.  According to “U.S. News Best High Schools Rankings”, it boasts a 95% Graduation Rate and it is in the top 18% nationally in the “College Readiness Index Rank”.  Results like these are the product of the district’s commitment to maintaining these high standards by continually adapting and improving.

Along with its high academic standards, Neshaminy High School also has a rich and storied history of excelling in athletics. Unfortunately, the current conditions of our athletic fields are an insult to that history and are extremely embarrassing.  There have been numerous games each season that were canceled or postponed over the last few years as a result of the poor conditions of our fields.  We have moved home games to the opponents turf fields to ensure games were played on safe and playable surfaces.  This can no longer be considered acceptable.  Just as the high school adapts and improves its resources to maintain the high standards, the athletic fields need to be improved.  If the community wants to maintain the level of excellence we have come to expect from our high school athletic program, turf fields are desperately needed.

The lack of a turf field is putting Neshaminy at a disadvantage compared to our competition.  Seventy-Nine percent of District 1 schools have turf fields  The last five years of P.I.A.A. champions in Neshaminy’ s P.I.A.A. Classes in Football, Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer, Boys Lacrosse, Girls Lacrosse, and Field Hockey (30 Champions), 28 champions played their home games on a turf field and only 2, the 2016 Boys Lacrosse Champion and the 2014 Boys Soccer Champion, played home games on a grass field.

Again, we implore the Neshaminy School Board to address the need for, and to approve the installation of, turf fields at Neshaminy High School.
