Survey: Nearly half back new high school

October 10th, 2012 in News

According to a phone survey conducted by the Jefferson City Public Schools, 47 percent of residents favor the Board of Education's proposal to build a single high school to replace the one at 609 Union St.

As envisioned by the surveyors, the new school would include grades 9-12, offer academies and include a new stadium.

The survey also showed 29 percent of respondents oppose the board's plan. The remaining quarter gave a variety of noncommittal responses.

The results of the survey - which was commissioned by the Board of Education and performed by the Kansas-based research firm Patron Insight - were discussed at Tuesday evening's board meeting.
