HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Huntsville School Board has taken the next step toward building a new school.

Board members Wednesday night approved Chapman Sisson Architects to design the new Grissom High School.

They could have some drawings in about six months.

The school board still has to decide whether to build the new school at its current location or on property off Weatherly Road. An outdoor group opposes the site off Weatherly Road, claiming there are Indian aartifacts there.

Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynkski said they've asked the owner of that land to evaluate it again.

"We don't think there are any. The first phase assessments say there aren't any but we want to double-double check, so that's on the owners so before we make and offer and moved forward even to a purchase.  The owner has to make that information available to use and assure us that everything is good to go," he said.

A decision on the location is expected within a month.
