School workshops on Sunday, Tuesday
Juneau - The city and the Juneau School District will hold public workshops about the auditoriums and food service at Juneau-Douglas High School and the proposed high school at Dimond Park.
Voters approved bonds in October 1999 to build a new high school and renovate JDHS, contingent on partial state reimbursement. A ballot proposition in the October election to extend a 1 percent sales tax also would contribute funds for JDHS renovations.
A workshop on the auditoriums is scheduled for 2-5 p.m. Sunday at the JDHS auditorium. Consultants from San Francisco will attend. The meeting will explore the needs of the community and the schools for performing arts facilities. Recommendations from the workshop will be presented 1-4 p.m. Monday in the auditorium.
Food service at the existing and proposed high schools will be discussed 6-8 p.m. Tuesday at the school district's central office boardroom. A consultant also will talk about how to provide cost-effective food service.
Recommendations on food service will be presented to city and district staff 1-4 p.m. Wednesday in the boardroom. The public is welcome. The central office is on Glacier Avenue and 12th Street.
