On October 10th, Manheim Township School District held an Act 34 Hearing for the Middle School Construction Project. Act 34 is a requirement from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) that states a public hearing should be held on all new construction and substantial additions for school districts.
The purpose of the Act 34 Hearing was for our District Administration, Architects, and Financial Advisors to present a proposal for the new construction that establishes the need for the project; reviews various options considered by the School Board prior to the decision to proceed; describes the construction elements proposed to meet the educational programs; presents estimated construction/total project costs; and provides citizens and residents an opportunity to offer comments and questions concerning the project.
For more information on the construction project, please visit the MT Middle School Construction Project page on the district's website.
