The next school board meeting is Wednesday, February 27th at 7pm in the Carson Middle School auditorium. If you are interested in speaking, please contact Rose Mary Ryan at or 412-369-5437.

There is a school board meeting tonight at 7pm at Carson Middle School. The following items are expected to be discussed:

1. The administration is expected to address whether they have accepted the offer from Architectural Innovations to do a more comprehensive demographics and feasibility study after the firm stated in a letter, “We felt then, as we do now, that without evaluating the District as a ‘whole’, the study would not provide the level of information necessary for the Board of School Board Directors to make appropriate decisions regarding School District facilities.”

2. The board is expected to address the 2013-2014 budget. You can read more by linking here to an article in the North Allegheny Patch.

There are two school board meetings this month:

1. February 20th Work Session

2. February 27th Regular Meeting

Both meetings are at 7pm at Carson Middle School.  These meetings are open to the public and provide time for community members to address members of the school board.  If you are interested in speaking, the rules require that you register 24 hours in advance by contacting Rose Mary Ryan at or 412-369-5437.
