CCAC eyes sites for new, larger North Hills campus
Trib Total Media has built a searchable statewide database and interactive map that enables taxpayers easily to compare salaries in schools throughout Pennsylvania. The database uses public personnel data from the state Department of Education to create the first user-friendly tool of its kind for finding and comparing pay for Pennsylvania teachers and administrators.

Community College of Allegheny County trustees on Thursday decided to begin seeking potential sites for a new North Hills campus.
Trustees agreed to spend $65,000 to study possible locations, a move that comes one month after trustees at the financially strapped community college announced they will close CCAC's Downtown center at the end of the year to save money.
Officials said the North Hills campus on Perry Highway in McCandless, with an enrollment of 6,021 students, is fast approaching capacity with no room for expansion.
Joyce Breckenridge, CCAC vice president and chief financial officer, said the study will look at demographics in the North Hills as well as sites that might be suitable for a campus. Breckenridge said the North Hills site that CCAC purchased about 20 years ago has limited parking and has run out of space to offer new programs.
CCAC trustees unanimously approved a motion yesterday to pay Oxford Development Corp. for the study and to prepare a program and development concept for the project.
Breckenridge said a long-term development plan adopted last year recommended the study.
CCAC President Alex Johnson said he will testify before the Allegheny County Council finance committee yesterday to make a plea for continued support. Johnson said a $7 million reduction in county support would represent a 7 percent reduction in the school's overall budget.
