State College Picks High School Concept

Final plans are in place for changes to State College Area High School. The State College Area School District’s Board of Directors unanimously approved Concept D last night, moving all core academic classes to the current high school’s south building. Portions of the north building will remain for interscholastic sports and community and district uses. The board also approved a recommended budget limit of 115 million dollars for the project.

Direct Flights Added at University Park Airport

United Airlines will begin twice-daily, non-stop flights from State College’s University Park Airport and Chicago O’Hare next year. University Park Airport officials announced yesterday the addition of the route. The airport currently offers non-stop flights to Detroit, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Flights will leave State College at 6:20 a.m. and 5:03 p.m. beginning on January 7th. According to the Centre Daily Times, airport officials view Chicago as a logical addition due to athletics, business and international flight connections.
