The Mt. Lebanon school board is prepared to raise rental rates for space in its newly-renovated high school. The decision comes as the district prepares to open the swimming pool and competition gym in the next two to three weeks.


At the Nov. 11 school board discussion meeting, superintendent Dr. Tim Steinhauer said the district will open as many spaces as it has available. It will observe usage and adjust rates as necessary to ensure its operating costs are covered. He also said specific rates had not yet been disclosed because the board hadn’t finalized the rate increase.


According to director of fiscal services Jan Klein, there have been preliminary discussions with certain groups, such as the Mt. Lebanon Aqua Club. “They are expecting rates to change,” she explained. “We don’t usually go out of our way to make money on rentals. However, we do want to make sure we cover our out-of-pocket costs.”


Rental rates for groups are typically based on the number of members who are Mt. Lebanon residents. Groups consisting mainly of residents pay less than those with significant membership outside the community.


The district is also preparing to open the high school facilities for four hours on Sundays, despite a policy forbidding it. The superintendent has the power to specify exceptions to the policy.


According to Steinhauer, one group is currently eligible for that exception.


“We’ll see how that goes and then determine if and how we need to modify that policy,” he said.
