Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

PA has several schools that are both Technical High School and Adult Technical School. How should they be handle? I've been putting two icons on the school, one as a high school and one as a Technical School.

You are correct, if a school operates separate programs (one technical and one high school), place a separate icon on the map for each school.

I've been going back and doing schools by county in PA and I'm noticing that schools that I've but two icons on, as recommended above, the Technical Icon has been deleted. Has the policy changed. ieHazleton Area High School and Career and Technical

Regarding Hazleton Area Career Center, it appears that both the technical school and Hazleton Area High School icons are still present in the editor on their respective buildings. There were two other points with the same name as the Hazleton Area Career Center that had been deleted because they were duplicates.

Our policy has not changed: if a school operates two separate programs, a point can be collected for each. If there are duplicates, the duplicates will be deleted.

Do you have additional examples we could look into just to make sure there's not anything fishy going on?

Elaboration on original answer: If a school operates separate programs (one technical and one high school), place a separate icon on the map for each school. Two distinct icons should only be added to a building if the school operates two distinct and separate programs (e.g. Emily Griffith Technical College and Emily Griffith High School in Denver). In this case, the Emily Griffith Technical College is represented by a technical/vocational school icon and the Emily Griffith High School is represented by a high school icon.

If a school is strictly a technical/vocational school that serves both high school students and adults (but does not operate two separate and distinct schools - i.e. a technical school and traditional high school), then only one point should be used to represent the technical school. An example of such a school is the Mifflin County Academy of Science and Technology in Lewiston, PA. This school provides vocational instruction to both adults and high school aged individuals, but it is strictly a vocational school and does not operate a separate, traditional high school. Their website notes that "students attend both their high school and The Academy daily," suggesting that the students only attend The Academy for vocational training while still attending their regular high school. In this case it is correct to only have a single technical/vocational school point representing this building.
