Rosslyn Farms petitioners will appear in Harrisburg before a representative from the state Department of Education next month in an appeal to a ruling against the borough's desire to secede from the Carlynton School District.

Rosslyn Farms originally petitioned the state in July 2011 to secede from Carlynton and join Chartiers Valley. Acting secretary of education Carolyn Dumaresq, then deputy secretary of education, issued the denial May 30. Petitioners then had 10 days to appeal the determination, which they did, leading to the Dec. 18 hearing.

Scheduling allows the hearing to carry over into Dec. 19, if necessary, but Carlynton Board of Directors president David Roussos said he hopes it can be completed in one day.

In other business, the board also approved a motion to renew a contract with the Allegheny Intermediate Unit.

The contract, which began a year ago, allows the district to go outside for its technology department.

The Intermediate Unit provides the district those services. The contract allows the Intermediate Unit to continue providing technology services for the 2013-14 school year.

The board also approved the following motions:

• Appointed Laura Sewell as playground aide at Crafton Elementary for 2.5 hours per day.

• Appointed Jayme Walzer as general cafeteria worker at Carnegie Elementary for three hours a day.

• Recalled Nancy McMullen from furlough and appointed her a Life Skills aide at Carnegie Elementary.
