Tonight, May 1, residents of the West Jefferson Hills School District may participate in a board discussion about the architectural firms that presented ideas for the new Thomas Jefferson High School.

The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. at the high school. The board also is expected to vote on which firm will be awarded the $70 million project.

During the last two weeks, five firms made presentations to board members and the construction committee. They are: Celli-Flynn Brennan, WTW Architects/ Grimm + Parker Architects, Crabtree Rohrbaugh & Associates, Buchart Horn Inc. and VEBH Architects, all with Pittsburgh connections. The companies were chosen out of 14 firms that expressed an interest.

The 225,000-square-foot high school and administration building will be built on property located near the current administration building on Old Clairton Road.

District officials hope the new high school will be ready by September 2018.
