IOWA CITY – Another high school will be built in the Iowa City school district – sometime.
And high school boundaries may be changing.
That much the school board made clear at a work session Tuesday night.
School board members saying they are committed to opening a third comprehensive high school was not exactly a huge surprise. I used the word “recommitted” in the Gazette story.
The need for a new high school was a key selling point by school officials during the school infrastructure local-option sales tax two years ago. And the district already is setting aside $3.2 million of that money each year for its construction.
A couple of school board members said last night that they thought opening another high school already was a stated goal by the board.
“Frankly, I thought we did, a long time ago,” say we were headed in that direction, Tim Krumm said.
