Steel Valley (Pennsylvania) board approves plans for new elementary

June 24, 2024
The $56 million campus will replace 2 existing elementary schools.

The Steel Valley (Pennsylvania) School Board has approved plans for a new elementary school in Munhall.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the $56 million project will bring together K-5 students now split between two schools and will connect with the existing middle/high school campus in Munhall.

The 700-student elementary building is expected to open for the 2026-27 school year.

“This development will not only allow our students to learn together under one roof throughout their entire school career, but also enhance safety and security,” Board President James Bulger said.

The school will be built at the site of the former Franklin Primary School building, now being used by district administration. That structure will be demolished this summer.

The existing elementary facilities were constructed 90 years ago or longer, the district says.

Evaluations of Barrett Elementary in Homestead, built in 1934, and Park Elementary in Munhall, constructed in the early 1900s, determined there were “significant barriers” to renovating or expanding either building,

Those barriers persuaded the district to pursue a new school.
