Stanton Academy Gets the Green Light for Expansion
Union Gap, WASH--Despite concerns from the Union Gap mayor and Police Chief, Stanton Academy has approval to expand. The decision came in from the Union Gap hearing examiner just a few hours ago. The alternative high school is part of the Yakima School District but is located in Union Gap.
They plan to add eight classrooms, parking, and water and sewage systems. Some neighbors and city leaders oppose the expansion because they say Stanton students bring crime to the area. School district leaders say the improvements are needed to invest in youth.
