PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Former Punxsutawney Borough Police officer Sean Weaver extended an olive branch in the form of a settlement to the members of Punxs-utawney Borough Council during Mondayâ€™s monthly meeting.
In August 2010, council did not offer Weaver and Pat Renwick full-time police employment at the end of their probationary periods. But during its Sept. 13 meeting, council hired Renwick but not Weaver.
Monday, Weaver spoke to council regarding a lawsuit he filed against the borough for not hiring him full-time.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” New statewide graduation exams are on the horizon, which in turn will change the Punxs-utawney Area School Districtâ€™s entire curriculum and graduation requirements.
Basically, â€śItâ€™s more testing,â€ť PAHS Principal David London said.
Monday, London, guidance counselor Emily Cassidy and director of federal programs and curriculum Richard Galluzzi reviewed the proposed Keystone Exams, which London said are designed to help all students, beginning with the Class of 2015, demonstrate proficiency in state academic standards.
