Discussion sparse at meeting about Minden school expansion

MINDEN — When members of the Minden Board of Education meet for their next regular meeting on May 11, they will determine whether to take on a building project and whether they would spend $25.6 million or $31.2 million.

The district played host to a facility committee meeting Tuesday at the C.L. Jones Middle School media center to help determine the scope of a potential expansion project.

It was the first such meeting in a year after a series of public discussions. The public meeting followed one with staff members that was conducted after school.

"Our whole purpose is to gather as much feedback as we can, so I appreciate the people coming tonight and providing us with that," Superintendent Melissa Wheelock said after the meeting. "Our board will take that, along with the staff input we received after school."
