Construction drawings are under development and will be completed and submitted to Kettering building department by the end of the month, Wineberg said. If everything goes according to plan, construction on the building could begin in three months, with completion expected by the beginning of the second semester of the 2017-2018 school year.
“You could usually anticipate somewhere around nine months for construction,” said Wineberg. “I would think we’re looking at completion hopefully within a year.”

Martino has eight credits as a director, including “The Peanuts Movie,” “Horton Hears a Who” and “Ice Age: Continental Drift.”
