During the October 16 Board work session meeting, Superintendent Dr. Timothy J. Quinn presented the Board with a document drafted jointly by the administration and John Harris, a representative of the neighbors who live adjacent to the high school's athletic fields. The document, prepared to serve as a "Use Agreement," was the result of a series of meetings with Mr. Harris. It is intended to outline a series of expectations around who can use the lighted fields, when the fields will be lit and how, expectations around noise resulting from events taking place on the fields, use of illuminated scoreboards and more. The superintendent will now share the Board's comments with Mr. Harris in order to discuss potential changes to the document.
By unanimous vote during their regular meeting on October 25, 2011, the Methacton School District Board of School Directors approved an athletic field improvement and lights project at Methacton High School. These improvements are to include the installation of synthetic turf and stadium lights.
