HAZLETON, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) Some parents in the Hazleton Area School District have launched an effort to break away from the school district. The I-Team’s Andy Mehalshick has the story.
A petition drive is underway in the Conyngham Valley -Freeland areas to gather support to have students there attend another school district.
Possibly the Crestwood School district in Mountain Top.
Parents tell Eyewitness news the Hazleton School District is simply too large to be efficient and their kids are paying the price.
The State Department of Education would have to approve a break from the district.
Hazleton Area School District Officials did not return our calls for comment.
