What’s next for Charles City High School after the completion of a second facilities survey remains to be seen.
A facilities task force presented options ranging from about $13 million to fix what they have to about $32 million to reimagine the makeup of the high school to about $38 million to replace the infamous circles. Results showed that a fourth option to do nothing is not an option.
That’s Interim Superintendent Dr. Anne Lundquist, who says that based on the results and what might be most financially feasible, she favors a hybrid approach of fixing and reimagining, which includes a performing arts auditorium.
Lundquist adds that, above all, the safety of the aging building is top priority.
The Charles City School Board is scheduled to discuss the next step in addressing the high school facilities during their regular meeting Monday night at 6:15 p.m. in the High School Library.
