You can't close Elderton High School, or we'll secede and go to Apollo Ridge and cost the taxpayers of Armstrong School District more money (rejected by board).

OK, we'll make Elderton High School a charter school (Everlasting Elderton) and cost the taxpayers even more money. The estimate: more than $2 million a year (rejected by board).

OK, we'll file an appeal and cost the taxpayers of ASD $100,000 or more for legal fees that could be used for the new school.

For the Everlasting Elderton Charter School Founding Board, it's not about education in Elderton as much as convenience!

Residents would like their local schools back — Dayton, Rural Valley, etc. — but times have changed. It's time the residents of Elderton support the new high school and stop being an Everlasting Pain in the ASD.
