Butler Area School District administrators would like to turn Emily Brittain Elementary into a “community partnership and demonstration school.”
Superintendent Brian White said the change is in its early stages but basically the school would be used as a testing ground for community and educational improvement programs, using collaboration from local colleges and businesses.
Emily Brittain- which is located in the city of Butler- currently serves about 250 students in grades kindergarten through fourth. The population served by the school has the highest poverty rates of the district.
In the past, White said teachers have had to go out of the district to see new programs being implemented, but in the future this could happen at Emily Brittain with help from community partners who will form an advisory board.
With Emily Brittain’s current principal moving into an administrative position at Center Township, White plans to work with faculty to select a new principal before the end of the current school year to help put this plan into action.
