Vote NO to WASD Construction Project Contract

This petition had 478 supporters

Dear Mr Fewins and members of the Weatherly Area School Board -

The community of Weatherly Area School District is asking the School Board to VOTE NO on the Resolution for the Construction Project Contract scheduled for February 14, 2018.

While the community understands that the district must maintain and repair NECESSARY items within the school for the safety and security of our children, we do not believe that this plan presented by EI Associates is the right approach.

Many in the community have voiced their concerns at the pubic forum and on social media. Switching of the schools is definitely not COST EFFECTIVE or in the best interest of our children.  There are many questionable repairs and “line items" on the proposal as well.

It was presented that all funding will be coming from a raise in tax dollars over the next three to fours years and the bond will be repaid over the course of 20 - 25 years.  Many in our community cannot withstand that increase in their budget!  The demographics study included in the (complete) feasibility study, is troubling to say the least.  Our school is shrinking as well as our community - what happens then?  Another tax increase?

There has to be a better way.
