North Allegheny School District Redistricting

Our family scheduled time to attend this important North Allegheny School District Board Meeting held on September 25, 2019. We were curious how the proposed redistricting plans would impact our family, friends, and the community. NASD has the highest enrollment ever at 8,555 and is expected to keep growing with new construction and families moving into existing homes. Growth is exciting but change is hard. The district is taking careful considerations in this matter and we were impressed with the exemplary leadership demonstrated by the district and board. Channel 11 news was at the meeting and asked our family to share our feelings in the clip below.
