Halifax Featured in Public Education Awareness Video

Videos Highlight School Program Success
Thanks to William Penn Grant
     (Harrisburg, PA)-Through a grant received from the William Penn Foundation, five Making an Impact videos, depicting various unique programs in the commonwealth's public schools, were developed in a joint effort by the Pennsylvania Principals Association, the Pennsylvania School Boards Association, the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators, the Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials, the Pennsylvania Association of Intermediate Units, and the Pennsylvania Association of Rural and Small Schools.
     The five schools or school districts were selected from more than 30 submissions and represent rural, urban, and suburban districts from across Pennsylvania. The goal of the Making an Impact Video is to highlight successful educational programs that have been initiated in the school/and/or school district during the past two to three years or a specific program that was re-started that might have been previously eliminated due to budget cuts as a result of increases in basic education funding. The five schools/school districts selected for videos include: Bellefonte Area School District: Halifax Area School District; Homer-Center Jr./Sr. High School in the Homer-Center School District; McDowell High School in the Millcreek Township School District; and Schuylkill Haven Area High School in the Schuylkill Haven Area School District.
