Should the city's high schools be renovated, should the school district build new facilities -- or a combination of both? That's up for debate by St. Joseph school officials.

But what do you think? KQ2 wants to hear your opinion. Vote on the solution you agree with in the poll below... and then sound off in the commenting area at the bottom of this article!

High School Concepts:

Concept C: Build New High School & Renovate Central

Concept D: Renovate Current High Schools

Concept E: New 9th Grade Center & 10-12 High School

RELATED: Community gets first look at possible plans for future of St. Joseph high schools

The proposals:
Five concepts are being considered with price tags ranging from $110 to $190 million dollars. The concepts include building either one (Concept A) or two new high schools (Concept B), build a new high school and renovate Central (Concept C), renovate all three current high schools (Concept D), or build a new 9th grade center and 10-12 high school (Concept E).

Concepts A, B, and E would call for closing Benton, Central and Lafayette or possibly using the buildings for other purposes.

For Saturday, expect a few more clouds but warmer temperatures. Highs are likely going to be in the low to mid 50s. For Sunday, a weak disturbance passing through the area will bring more clouds and a very low chance at seeing a stray shower. Highs will be in the lower 50s.
