The district's administration will continue to work and make adjustments in preparation for board adoption of a final budget in June.

Northampton Community College

Dr. Mark Erickson, president of Northampton Community College, attended the school board meeting to request an increase in financial support from Saucon Valley for the 2014-15 school year.

"I'm here today to respectfully request your continued support and a slight increase in what we're looking for next year," said Erickson. "It's one of best investments you'll make. I see it at work absolutely every day."

The school district now contributes $265,414 a year to the college. The college is asking the school board to increase that contribution to $268,285 - $2,871 more a year.

The school board will vote on that request next month.

Erickson said 282 Saucon Valley High School graduates enrolled in Northampton Community College last fall.

The school board also will appoint a trustee to Northampton Community College at its next meeting on April 8 - and it may be a current school board member.
