Quaker Valley School District Secures Community Project Funding

Quaker Valley School District is pleased to announce that it has successfully secured $850,000 in congressional Community Project Funding on Saturday, March 9, 2024 with the passing of the first half of the House of Representatives spending bill. This significant allocation will bolster the District’s ongoing efforts to improve local infrastructure as they prepare to build a new high school for the students and community.

In a statement to the press, Rep. Deluzio said, “The $15.5 million in funding that we passed today will go directly to things that matter to us in Western Pennsylvania: better roads and transit service, funding for cops and firefighters, parks and housing, infrastructure and business district revitalization, and more.”

The $850,000 set aside for Quaker Valley’s project will be allocated to the widening of Camp Meeting Road at its intersection with Beaver Street to provide overall improved mobility, traffic control, bicycle and pedestrian safety measures, and streetscapes. The planned project also includes two dedicated and paved paths from Beaver Street to the new high school to be located at 210 Camp Meeting Road for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.  

This allocation, obtained through the diligent advocacy efforts and collaboration of the District, government affairs consulting firm Summit Strategies, and Congressman Deluzio, reflects a shared commitment to investing in the future of Quaker Valley’s students and the community. This project is being undertaken as established in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Leetsdale Borough. 

“We are thrilled to receive this $850,000, which marks another incredible milestone as we prepare to build our new high school,” said Dr. Tammy A. Andreyko, Superintendent of Quaker Valley School District. “This project will be instrumental in ensuring that the route to and from our new school is improved and provides opportunities for our students to walk and bike to and from the new building safely. Not only will this benefit our students, but this is also a significant investment in the safety and connectedness of our community.”

Quaker Valley School District extends its sincere gratitude to the legislators and community partners who played a pivotal role in securing this Community Project Funding. Their unwavering support and advocacy efforts have made this significant investment possible and will have a lasting impact on the educational landscape of the District.
