Meeting scheduled to discuss juvenile criminals in the classroom

Jim Thorpe meeting tonight

JIM THORPE, Pa. - An informational meeting is set for Monday night in Carbon County for parents concerned that their children may have to share classrooms with juvenile criminals.

Officials from the Jim Thorpe District will be talking about the possibility of up to 30 students attending the high school in the upcoming school year.  

Those students are currently educated and housed at Youth Service Agency in Penn Township, but a lack of funding may cause the school to close.

If that happens, state law requires the school district to educate the offenders.    

The meeting will start at 6:00 Monday night at the high school auditorium.
