JC school board updated on high school plans
Sunday, March 4, 2012
Is there a new public high school in Jefferson City’s future? The seven-member public schools board has made no decision on that question, but spent time at a Friday work session/retreat getting updates on the administration’s work studying it.
After nearly two years of study and public meetings, Superintendent Brian Mitchell in December suggested the board consider two options for the future of the district’s secondary education program — renovating and expanding the existing Jefferson City High School campus and looking “for an alternate purpose for our high school facilities, and to investigate a new location (that) would have an appropriate amount of acreage to develop a brand new facility to serve all of our kids.”
