Energy Program Helps Keystone Oaks and Lowers Your Electric Bill

Keystone Oaks School District has partnered with FirstEnergy Solutions to help you save some cash, and raise money for the district.

Keystone Oaks wants to help you save a few dollars on your electric bill.

The school district has partnered with FirstEnergy Solutions, one of the nation’s largest electric generation suppliers, to offer special pricing to district residents for their electric bill.

Residents living in Dormont, Castle Shannon, and Green Tree who enroll in the Friends and Family Program will receive special savings, and FirstEnergy Solutions will contribute $10 to Keystone Oaks for every enrollment.

Participants will continue to receive the same level of electric service and one monthly bill from their electric utilities. In addition, they will continue to contact their electric company for any power outages.

To enroll or for more information, see the Keystone Oaks School District website or call 412-571- 6000.

One of the recommendations that came from Consolidation Task Force last year was for KO to pursue the local electric generation companies and to sell back our unused power during the peak usage for the east coast in the summer months. We estimated this would save thousands, as Baldwin Whiteall SD does. Maybe Dan Domalik can replay or any Board members, as to if any of the "penny saving" measures has been implimented. Every little bit helps to add a teacher or not eliminate some extra curricular activity.

Wonderful idea Mr. Dini. I would love Mr. Domalik to list each of the Task Force recommendations and how they've been implemented. Then he can list all of his campaign promises and tell how each has been implemented. Then he can list all of the saving measures that have been implemented at his initiative with dollar amounts attached. There are probably many besides myself who would find that to be fascinating reading and a wonderful reflection of his leadership.

That Robert, he's wiley like a lemming. Very few of those SOS fellas cost savings ideas got implemented. Mr. Domalik, Hommrich and Finucan couldn't stop the district from spending about $30,000 for a new lawn mower for Dormont Elementary, even though they all voted NO on that vote. They also failed to save the district money with their NO votes for bonuses and raises for principals and staff. It seems that even though they are voting NO to all of this spending they just can't stop the other board members from spending that money that we don't have. And that Mr. Hommrich. He wanted to donate that solar equipment. Then he was going to install it and getting it working, for FREE. Free solar power for the district plus a new technology for our kids to learn about. That didn't happen, did it? Good thing the rest of the board, led by now President Marian Randazzo and then superintendent Cathy Foster saw that those savings did happen. Mr. Finucan, that fella from Dormont, I think I remember him saying something about free website stuff. He said that the cost would be less than $100 a year. Good thing the same group of Randazzo, Foster and Alward put a stop to that. How great is it that we have board members like Alward, Randazzo, and Nee, and staff like Cathy Foster to keep those fellas from putting those savings plans in place? Those 6 to 3 and 5 to 4 losses that the SOS people keep losing sure help in keeping them from making their cost savings ideas work.

Do you mean the same board members who refused to attend training for new school board members? You don't see a conflict of interest where a guy who's job is solar panels wants to put in "free" (wink,wink) solar panels? Where does that fit with the established curriculum any how? Now they're curriculum experts too? Perhaps if they attended some of these classes they would have learned that their job is to GOVERN the district, NOT MANAGE it. Come on my friend. . .one year in and they've done nothing. They continue to show they don't have a clue.
