East Allegheny School Board has approved the public sale and auction of the former Green Valley School, located at 3290 Crestview Drive in North Versailles Twp.
Built in 1951, Green Valley School formerly educated kindergarteners through third graders. When the school closed in 2016, those students were combined with those at Logan Middle School, making Logan a K-6 facility.
The sale was authorized by 9-0 vote at this month’s meeting.
The district is asking for a minimum bid of $499,900 for the school and the successful bidder must get final approval from the board on the intended use of the building.
According to Allegheny County tax records, Green Valley sits on 9.5 acres and has an assessed value of $3.7 million. An adjacent 9.8-acre parcel is also owned by the school district.
A real-estate listing on LoopNet says the building is 51,000 square feet and has 20 classrooms, and suggests it could be converted in the senior-citizen apartments.
