Monday's regular meeting of the St. Marys Area School District Board of Directors saw the board revisit the subject of a resolution to include Ridgway Area School District (RASD) in an athletic co-operative between St. Marys High School and Elk County Catholic for the sports of swimming and diving.
The proposal was first introduced at last month's meeting during which board members debated the extent and method with which the RASD would be charged for its inclusion. Last month, board members debated various forms of expensing Ridgway for its participation in the co-op and how it would share in program associated costs.
