West Allegheny school board members voted tonight to submit two elementary school renovation plans to the state Department of Education.

The proposals include a maximum of about $28 million to $30 million in infrastructure improvements and modernization work at McKee Elementary in North Fayette and Wilson Elementary in Findlay.

"We have to do something, but the question is how much we can afford to do," said Ed Faux, chairman of the property and supply committee.

Superintendent John DiSanti said the district will analyze its finances and determine the final scope of work over the next couple of months.

He said the state submission meets an Oct. 1 deadline for partial project reimbursement. Proposals after that date would not be eligible for state subsidies because of Gov. Tom Corbett's budget moratorium on school construction funding.
