Today could be the day Clark County residents find out the location of their new high school, slated to open for 1,700 students in 2011.
Rumors have swirled about the school's proposed site, but the Clark County Board of Education hasn't announced the location to the public. Board members were still considering three properties in July, but began to move forward with one identified only as "Property A."
The state-required construction form for the project indicates the site is 88 acres. Experts appraised and surveyed the site, and engineers conducted preliminary geotechnical exploration in the last month.
Board members will also conduct the superintendent's annual evaluation today in closed session, a common practice that came under scrutiny this summer when a Spencer County Board of Education member filed a complaint with the state Attorney General.
