The South Fayette school board Tuesday night approved a study of options for new and expanded high school facilities.
The board awarded a contract of as much as $15,000 to Eckles Architecture of New Castle to perform the feasibility study. The same firm had designed the district’s intermediate school that opened last year.
Board president Len Fornella said the firm will determine a plan for what facilities are needed and where to put them.
“It’s not that we want to spend money on construction, but we have to," he said.
A recent population report predicted the high school will reach capacity around the 2015-2016 school year, with enrollment growing by 286 students over 10 years.
