A potential bond issue for a new Jefferson City High School and a push from a private firm to provide armed guards in the schools tops the School Board agenda Wednesday night.
Board members could approve a spring ballot issue to seek a 55–cent tax hike to fund the multi–million dollar high school. The school would be built adjacent to the new St. Mary’s complex along Highway 179. A Jefferson City-based security company is asking the board to hire it to increase school security. The company will also be at tonight’s meeting.
