Ross Township and North Hills School district share many facilities and resources and cooperate in municipal planning. The two meet annually to discuss development, progress, and future changes to our community. The Township has three commissioners that act as liaisons with the school district, meeting as needed. In addition, the Township and School District jointly fund a crossing guard program. There are 15 high volume traffic areas monitored daily by trained crossing guards. This insures children arrive and depart the schools safely.
The Township partnered with the school district to educate and engage the elementary students surrounding Stormwater and Environmental Stewardship. The link below is an example of one of the many presentations used to spark interest in the children while educating them on specific issues in our community. Waste reduction and recycling, environmental conservation, public health and safety, and reducing water pollution are some of the popular topics.
