Chapter 4: Catholic Consolidation

A lot of school news recently, June 4th is when taxpayers will vote on the Colonial School District’s operating referendum. Pencader Charter has closed its doors, and it is also the end of the line for Our Lady of Fatima in New Castle. It is another sign of declining classroom enrollment for some area parochial schools.
