Chartiers Valley hires architect, though no building plans set
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.
