Due to the constant opposition by Springfield, Delaware County, residents on the plans to construct a new $131 million high school, municipal leaders have agreed to move the high school to Chester where there hasn’t been a new public school building built since 1974.
Both towns are excited about the decision as the combined student body will surely raise the Chester school district from the bottom performer in the state, and the pool of talent for the variety of new sports offerings will rank Chester-Spring High School into national rankings.
The final decision to move the school was made after a Springfield resident offered this comment at last night’s planning commission meeting…
…the new school will be a detriment to the neighborhood.
Officials said there’s a place down the road where a new school would be a great asset and then started mapping out new bus stops to get their kids there.
Obviously, none of this is true, but it should be.
