Q: What happened?

A: Roughly 40 people came to hear the work of the high school site evaluation committee for Columbia Public Schools, which included a presentation by an engineering firm that looked at five sites.

Q: What happens now?

A: On Thursday, the Columbia School Board will get a report about the meeting. The next committee meeting is tentatively set for Oct. 9. The committee intends to conclude its work by the end of October so it can have a recommendation to the board in early November.

Q: How can the public get involved?

A: At the end of the next meeting, the public will be allowed to comment, with a five-minute time limit per person. Committee members can be reached via e-mail; their addresses can be found at

Q: Will the meeting be televised?

A: There are no plans to air the meeting on the district’s cable channel.
