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 rryan@northallegheny.org or 412-369-5437.

With the plans for McCandless Crossing complete, and construction well underway, planners in McCandless are eyeing another large parcel of land for redevelopment.  Click here to read the article from the North Allegheny Patch.

We are encouraging residents to do the following 3 things this week:

1) Email Rep. Mike Turzai and ask him to advocate on behalf of Peebles the same way he did for Bradford Woods. In the fall of 2011, when Bradford Woods was proposed for closure, Rep. Turzai met with school board members and told them he did not want Bradford Woods to close. We are requesting that you email Rep. Turzai at mturzai@pahousegop.com and ask him to tell the school board he is opposed to closing ANY elementary building in the district.

2) Send a letter to the school board by emailing school board secretary Rose Mary Ryan at rryan@northallegheny.org. If you spoke at the hearing, simply draft your comments into a letter and address it to the entire board.

3) Mark your calendar for Monday, February 25th. SaveNASchools will be holding a spaghetti dinner fundraiser from 6-8pm at the Franklin Park Fire Hall. This event will be an opportunity for the community to get more information, discuss strategy, and order yard signs. Click here for the Spaghetti Dinner Flyer and here to purchase tickets.
