Due to the current disaster emergency declared by Governor Wolf by Proclamation dated March 6, 2020, and the subsequent Executive Orders closing and extending the closure of schools, closing non-life sustaining business, and imposing a “stay at home” order for several counties, including Montgomery County, and in consideration of the health and safety of the school community, notice is hereby given that the Abington Board of School Directors will convene its regularly scheduled June 23, 2020 meeting using a live, web-based video streaming platform. The public Board meeting will be streamed live on the Abington School District YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/AbingtonSchoolDistrict/live) at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23, 2020.
