Dr. Brian White, Superintendent of the Butler Area School District, presented his recommendation for the future organization of our schools on Monday, June 10, 2019. His recommendation is based on numerous factors, including community feedback that was gathered at the School Organization Community Forums last fall.
At this point, we are once again asking for community feedback. We hope you will take the time to review Dr. White's report and share your feedback by completing a short survey.
