Parents from schools in the Southeast High School boundary area will meet Wednesday evening for the first of several community input sessions on the future of Southeast.
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.
Wednesday’s meeting, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Northeast Magnet High School, 5550 N. Lycee, is intended for families from schools in the Southeast boundary: Coleman, Curtis, McAuliffe, Adams, Allen, Beech, Caldwell, Clark, College Hill, Jackson, Jefferson, Minneha, Price-Harris and Seltzer.
The meeting will include tours of Northeast Magnet, which opened last fall and would serve as a model for a new southeast quadrant high school.
Child care will be provided, and Spanish and Vietnamese translators will be available.
Wichita school leaders will collect input during several meetings and building tours scheduled this month. A community-wide meeting will be held at Southeast High, 903 S. Edgemoor, on May 21, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
