What will happen to the Simonsen Ninth Grade Center if Jefferson Citians back a plan for a second high school? District spokesperson Amy Berendzen says those students would move to the current JC High or the new school. She says the Simonsen traffic before and after school is a nightmare.
“This should be a little bit easier and more safe for our kids,” Berendzen said, “because it’s not just the bus traffic and getting students on buses, but it’s the city traffic on city streets.”
Jefferson City voters will see two school bond issues on the April ballot. They would fund the new high school and a renovation at JCHS.
