Dear Mt. Lebanon Residents,
The Mt. Lebanon School Board may be forming a Community Advisory Board for the High School Project. Members of the School Board proposed forming this advisory board at the October 12, 2009 School Board Discussion meeting.
The purpose of the Community Advisory Board is to review the current design of the High School renovation/construction project with the architects from Celli-Flynn Brennan, OWP/P, and construction manager, P.J. Dick. There will be approximately 6 to 8 evening meetings held over the next 6 to 8 week period. It is anticipated that the work of the Community Advisory Board will be completed in early December, with a final report given to the School Board at that time. More information about the scope and structure of the Community Advisory Board will be available following the School Board meeting on October 19, 2009.
All Mt. Lebanon residents including design, construction, and education professionals are invited to submit an email or letter of interest along with their qualifications to Dr. Timothy Steinhauer by Oct. 23, 2009. The School Board will review the submissions and appoint up to nine members to the Community Advisory Board.
Interested residents may send an email or letter of interest with qualifications to:
Timothy J. Steinhauer
Mt. Lebanon School District
7 Horsman Drive
Pittsburgh, PA 15228
Please note Community Advisory Board in subject line of the email or on the front of letter and include your contact information.
(My comment: This sounds very much like Dan Rothschild's recent proposal. Let's hope that the District and the School Board follow through with appointing a panel of indpendent thinkers, and that the District, Board, and the architects commit to listening to what the panel has to say.)
