Spring-Ford Area School Board meeting, 2-24-14

The Spring-Ford Area School Board gathered for a quick meeting Monday night which was heavily attended.


  1. The school board Region II appointment saga continues. Janet Stokes filed her petition, officially, Thursday.
  2. Jackson filed roughly a week before.
  3. Williams was a board member from 1989 to 2007 and again from 2003 to 2011. She was 65.
  4. Spring-Ford Area Senior High School Principal Pat Nugent introduced the students you see there in a blurry photo I took. He said the district is "very proud" of the two and they now might receive a scholarship for their achievement.
  5. This will fall into the new school evaluation system.
  6. The meeting flew. Of note on the agenda was the approval of moving forward on a cafe project. Here's Tweets from after the meeting when I was able to process it a little better.
  7. At the end of the agenda was a second, open public comment, as is usual.
  8. King's stats from Baseball Reference. Apparently also runs a baseball training complex and was also a scout for the Philadelphia Phillies for more than three decades.
  9. King, Goodin and McDaniel all were seen talking after the meeting finished.
