Minot Public School Board

What: Retreat

When: Tuesday, 5 p.m.

Where: Former Cognizant building, 2000 21st Avenue NW, enter through Door 6.

Agenda: The board will discuss future planning for the district. No decisions will be made during the retreat. Earlier this year the district hired an architectural firm to draft a proposal for how to convert two former Cognizant office buildings into a new high school or other school space. The district purchased the land and building space last year for the nominal fee of $10. The main building at the site is a steel-framed construction with about 115,000 square feet of open construction on a 38-acre campus and has a parking lot with more than 600 parking spaces. The property was assessed at about $14.5 million, considerably less than it would cost to build a new high school from scratch. The existing building has roughly half the space that would be needed for a second high school.

How to make your opinion known: All meetings and work sessions by the school board are open to the public. Board members are Jim Rostad, Laura Mihalick, Miranda Schuler, Mike Gessner, and Bonny Berryman.
