'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Chartiers Valley school officials voted last week to hire Pittsburgh-based architect IKM to handle any future construction or renovations in the district.

District spokeswoman Kara Droney said no plans for renovation or construction have been made.

“If we do expand or renovate, we will keep the community informed and offer opportunities for them to be involved throughout the process,” she said.

She said the district's solicitor still is finalizing the contract with IKM, but the fee will be 5 percent of the total project cost for any new construction and 5.5 percent for any renovation work.

In other business, the board also voted to hire Amy Bouch as a high school English teacher. Bouch has a degree in English education and school psychology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and she most recently was a reading specialist intern in the Allegheny Valley School District.

She has a reading specialist certificate from the University of Pittsburgh, where she also is working toward her master's degree.
