After a long awaited decision, a district can begin to process where to go minus one building. 

Thursday night, the Council Rock School Board voted 6 to 2 for Rolling Hills Elementary School to close. 

The motion will now involve a redistricting plan and additions to the two other elementary schools in the districts. Northampton’s Hillcrest Elementary School will receive 10 additional classrooms, while Wrightstown Elementary School will gain 5 more with extra renovations. 

According to reports, the estimated cost for all remodels will be more than $39 million dollars, but without a Rolling Hills project, the district will save approximately $18 million. 

 

However, this decision is not set in stone as state law requires a specific hearing on the matter. The board must have, yet, another vote within the next three months.
