TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Vigo County community is looking toward the future of local schools.

The Vigo County School Corporation Bond Steering Committee is interviewing architecture firms. One firm will be tasked with completing an eight-year facilities plan. This would include work on all three high schools and any other building needs.

The Bond Steering Committee was created last fall and is made up of school board members and private citizens. The group interviewed four firms during a public meeting Monday night.

Firms were asked the same series of questions. The committee members then graded each firm.

Superintendent Dr. Rob Haworth says each firm is capable of doing the work but they also need to be able to work with this community.

"Are they a good fit for our community and bringing a group in that will be spending a lot of time in community meetings, working with our staff, working with various organizations in the community to develop a well-rounded project for Vigo County?"

It will be up to the full board to make a final decision. Superintendent Haworth says that will likely come in May. Then, he'd like the selected firm to have a plan ready by the start of next year.
