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.


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.
