Members of the public can take a tour of Southeast High School on Monday as they consider whether the district should renovate the school, build a new one, or both.

Tours of the school, 903 S. Edgemoor, will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The Wichita school board has been debating whether to expand and renovate the current Southeast High, build a new one at 127th Street East and Pawnee, or both. Members intend to approve a plan June 24.

Wichita school leaders will collect input during several meetings scheduled this month.

• On Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m., residents can tour Northeast Magnet High School, 5550 N. Lycee, just east of Rock Road on 54th Street North. That school, which opened last fall, would serve as a model for a new southeast quadrant high school.

• A community-wide meeting will be held at Southeast High on May 21, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. At that meeting, residents will hear an update on bond construction and then break into small discussion groups to share thoughts and opinions.

Child care will be provided, and Spanish and Vietnamese translators will be available.

• District officials are collecting feedback online through a survey on the district’s website. The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/southeastreview.
