The four candidates supported by a group fighting to keep Peebles Elementary School in McCandless open won seats on the North Allegheny School Board on Tuesday, according to unofficial results.

Save NA Schools endorsed Scott Russell, Tara Zimmerman-Fisher and incumbent Ralph J. Pagone, who were three of five candidates running for four seats with a four-year term, and they won.

Incumbent Thomas C. Schwartzmier won the fourth seat, while incumbent Daniel E. Hubert was defeated.

In the race for a two-year term, Kevin Mahler, who was endorsed by Save NA Schools, beat Gary S. Wenig.

The North Allegheny School Board has discussed closing Peebles and sending its students to other schools in order to save money.

In the breakdown of results, percentages might not add up to 100 percent because of rounding.

Here are the results:

Two-year seat

One seat open

Kevin Mahler (I) — 56 percent

Gary S. Wenig (R) — 44 percent

Write-in — less than 1 percent

Four-year seats

Four seats open

Scott Russell (R/D) — 24 percent

Tara Zimmerman Fisher (R/D) — 25 percent

Thomas C. Schwartzmier (R) — 17 percent

Ralph J. Pagone (R/D) — 24 percent

Daniel E. Hubert (D) — 10 percent

Write-in — less than 1 percent

There were no contested races for municipal positions in the communities that make up the North Allegheny School District — Bradford Woods, Franklin Park, Marshall Township and McCandless.
