The Long Range Facilities Planning process began in 2005. The DLR Architectural and Engineering Firm completed a detailed facilities analysis in 2012. Patrons were invited to attend facility meetings beginning in November 2011 through June 2014 to analyze potential solution options to the issues identified in the analysis. The issues identified included inadequate instructional classroom spaces, aging infrastructure, as well as safety and security issues.† The solution options ranged from renovations to the replacement of the East Elementary and the Minden High School buildings. The Minden Public Schools Board of Education unanimously adopted a resolution on June 9, 2014 calling for a bond issue election on November 4, 2014. The $23,105,000 plans include a new high school as well additions and improvements to the existing middle school building. If a bond is approved this fall, a new high school could open by the fall of 2016.
Three public facility meetings have been scheduled to share facility information and to provide tours of the high school.† Each meeting will take place in the high school gym.†
September 25th, 7:00 pm
October 1st, 1:00 pm
October 21st, 7:00 pm

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
Robert F. Kennedy Capetown, June 6th 1966
