A Brief History of the Mt. Lebanon School District


In 1902, the first trolley line from Pittsburgh enabled the Mt. Lebanon area to begin development.  Ten years later, the citizens of the Mt. Lebanon area of Scott Township voted to incorporate what is now Mt. Lebanon under the legislative act providing for establishment of "First Class Township" government.

 

In July of 1912, the Mt. Lebanon School District came into legal existence, established by decree of the Court of Quarter Sessions.  The school district was considered a fourth-class district with a five-member school board.

 

In 1912, the school housing consisted of a six-room frame building at the corner of Washigton Road and Cedar Boulevard, and a one-room frame building at Beadling Road.  The close of World War I signaled the beginning of a planned program of expansion including site selections and bond issues for the building of the ten schools that now reside in the district.

 

Completion of the Liberty Tubes in 1924 marked a period of rapid growth in the community.  By 1961, Mt. Lebanon's population had grown to 35,361 from 1,705 in 1912, thus changing its rating to a second-class school district with nine school board members. The nine-member elected School Board annually establishes the school district budget and millage rate.  Each member serves a four-year term with elections occurring every two years for expired terms.
