Thursday, November 7, 2019 | 10:13 AM

Ligonier Valley is another step closer to joining the WPIAL.

The District 6 Board of Directors unanimously approved the transfer to the WPIAL on Wednesday, according to District 6 president and Penn Cambria superintendent William Marshall.

The five-step process started with the Ligonier Valley School Board allowing the school’s administration to seek a return to the WPIAL after moving to District 6 in 1969. The second step was the Heritage Conference unanimously approving Ligonier Valley’s decision to leave the conference.

The next hurdle is approval from the WPIAL to join. The WPIAL Board of Directors’ next meeting is Nov. 18.

If approved at the WPIAL meeting, the final step is getting approval from the PIAA, which will meet in early December.

Ligonier Valley wants to join the WPIAL for the 2020-21 school year.
