Talks continue on new Iowa City high school, boundary changes

By Gregg Hennigan

IOWA CITY – Boundary changes and a new high school.

Those are the big topics on the school board agenda Tuesday night.

At its last meeting, the school board discussed high school boundary changes and received a proposal from Superintendent Lane Plugge to open a high school in the North Liberty area in the fall of 2014.

I’ll have a story in tomorrow’s paper on some of the financial details associated with a new school. A shorter version is available now by clicking here.

Plugge also is expected to provide the board with an update on some preliminary work he’s been doing on possible elementary school boundary changes. He’s asked University of Iowa demographers to divide the district into “building blocks,” Associate Superintendent Jim Behle said Friday. That’s something that has already been done on a smaller scale with the high school boundary scenarios.
