The Minden Board of Education met on Feb. 11 for its monthly meeting in the C.L. Jones Middle School media center with a full agenda of items in front of the group.
During the public comment representatives from the Geis Group (Roger Jones, Marla Gross and Michael Geis) presented their findings from a feasibility study the Minden Public School Foundation had the group do on a group of 54 patrons within the school district to see if there is support for a bond issue for a possible new high school. The age range of the patrons interviewed was 33 to 80 years.
Gross showed the school board, foundation members and the meeting audience a power point presentation of their findings.
From the Geis findings, 92 percent had a positive attitude about a new school with remarks such as it is necessary, do the whole project ($30 million) and include a community fitness/health center.
