The Lawrence school board has scheduled a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday to discuss pending litigation with neighbors who oppose athletic facilities construction near Lawrence High School.
The school district sent notification of the meeting that will be at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. Superintendent Randy Weseman said board members will likely go into executive session with attorneys to discuss the status of the lawsuit.
Weseman said the school board could take action following the executive session.
Neighbors in November filed suit against the school district and the city, claiming the plans for a new football stadium and other facilities would harm the quality of their property.
The school board last year passed a plan to improve outdoor athletic facilities at both LHS and Free State High School.
