Talks continue about the possibility of building a new public high school in Lafayette Parish.

The Advertiser reports (http://bit.ly/1E7MHxC) the school board’s facilities and finance committees will have a joint meeting Monday to talk about the specifics.

Board member Jeremy Hidalgo, who is on the facilities committee, says he thinks the discussion will include details such as where to put a new high school, what size it should be and how to pay for it.

Based on previous discussions, one of the most likely spots for a new high school might be somewhere in the Broussard or Youngsville area, which has seen huge growth in recent years.

Only one high school – Comeaux High – serves that area. The school has an enrollment of nearly 1,900 students.
