O'Hara Township-based Massaro CM Services will begin work as the construction manager for an estimated $30-million remodelling project that is being considered for Penn-Trafford High School.

The school board voted 8-0 on Jan. 14 to pay Massaro $70,000 for the design and bidding phases of the project and $20,500 per month during the construction and close-out phases.

Massaro has worked on projects in the Chartiers Valley, Bethel Park, Woodland Hills and Blackhawk school districts.

Superintendent Tom Butler said the goal is to have a preliminary design available to show to the public by the fall. Construction could begin in spring or summer of 2014.

Hirings

The school board approved the following hirings:

• Jamie Buzzard, third-grade teacher at Sunrise Elementary School, $42,300.

• Nicklas Campero, chemistry and biology teacher at Penn-Trafford High School, $44,800.

• Sara Oliver and Dorothy Sullivan, student learning assistants, each at $13,500.

School calendar

Earlier this month, board members adopted the 2013-14 school calendar.

Classes will begin on Aug. 22 and end on May 23, barring cancellations for weather or emergencies.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
