The Indian Prairie School District 204 board reportedly is considering four possible sites to build Metea Valley High School. Does this mean the costly Brach-Brodie land is off the table?
We'll find out by Oct. 26, by which time the board will have to act or lose its chance to acquire land that a jury decided was worth $518,000 per acre, plus damages. Meanwhile, officials from Macom confirm their offer to sell land for a high school off 95th Street is still on the table.
If the district passes on the Brach-Brodie site due to cost concerns but decides to go ahead and build the voter-approved high school somewhere else, are we facing the agonizing prospect of redrawing boundaries all over again? Say it ain't so, please.
