A meeting of Wichita Independent Neighborhoods on Monday will include information and discussion about Southeast High School.

The meeting, 5:30 p.m. Monday at the United Way building, 245 N. Water, is open to the public.

David Babich, spokesman for the group, said school board president Lynn Rogers will attend the meeting to answer questions about options for Southeast.

The board has been debating the future of Southeast High and a new southeast quadrant high school, estimated to cost up to $54 million. Members intend to approve a plan June 24.

The new high school and renovations to the current Southeast, at Lincoln and Edgemoor, were put on hold more than two years ago as the district dealt with budget cuts and a new boundary plan.

The meeting also will include a presentation about the recently consolidated Metropolitan Area Building and Construction Department, Babich said.
