Before the board discussed the issue, Methacton Superintendent David Zerbe gave an updated recommendation to the board. To the applause of the hundreds of concerned community members in the audience, Zerbe recommended the board wait to make any vote one way or the other.

Please let me make it clear that my recommendation is that there should be no vote on any school closing prior to December of 2015, Zerbe said.
The board is prohibited by law from voting any sooner than May, three months after the Feb. 25 hearing date.

Zerbe said waiting until December will allow the board enough time to thoroughly review all of the data and effects of any decision. Additionally, it will give ample opportunity for the proper transition time necessary should the board vote to close a school for the 2016 school year.
At the Feb. 23 consolidation hearing, Zerbe recommended Audubon Elementary School be closed and Arrowhead Elementary remain open, selecting from a range of options including closing both schools, closing Arrowhead, and leaving both schools open.
Zerbe said the option to close both schools were not economically or educationally feasible and leaving Arrowhead open had the best prospects for additional construction, if needed in the future, and fewer complications with district reconfiguration.
On Wednesday night, as part of his updated recommendation, he asked that the focus of the administration and board remain on the possibility of closing Audubon.
To aid in that focus, he recommended four committees be formed consisting of members of the administration, staff and the community at large.
He recommended formation of an enrollment committee, a student and staff transition committee, a committee to work with a consultant or group of staff on redrawing attendance areas and a committee to focus on the financial impact of any decision.

All along this project has been predicated on our need for safety for our students and athletes, said Methacton Superintendent David Zerbe, referring to a feasibility study dating back to 2008 which said the district was 11 fields short of the amount needed to provide safe play for students and that the current fields were being overused.

...
The district, according to Zerbe, has decided to leave out the installation of the lights from the electrical bid they awarded Monday night, pending the results of the appeal of Worcesters decision. Zerbe indicated the district will either bid for installation of the lights at a later date, or seek in-kind donations.
At that time we had the intent to keep the lighting included in that process, Zerbe said, referring to original bidding process. It is now in our best interest, which provided use the most flexibility in moving forward in this project.to not have the installation of the poles and lighting until the litigation, our appealis concluded.
Zerbe updated the board on the timeline of the project with a potential groundbreaking on March 2, 2015 and substantial completion expected on August 7 2015.
