The Washington C.H. School Board will be looking at a resolution to possibly sell part of the HistoricMiddle School when they meet tonight at (10-03-11) A resolution is on the agenda that would allow the district to determine whether it is possible to divide the building for possible sale. The district would keep the auditorium and other parts of the school while auctioning off the main building.
At the last school board meeting Thomas Simons, senior vice president for the WODA Group, proposed acquiring the building for the purpose of renovating it for senior housing. The proposal would involve placing the school on the National Register of Historic Places, guaranteeing that the buildings historic integrity would not be compromised.
The school would reserve the right to reject any and all bids.
In other business; the board will consider the acceptance of donations totaling a little over $2100 dollars. Treasurer Ben Teeters will recommend the board also accept $15 thousand dollars in state funding.
The board will consider the employment of several substitute teachers and volunteer wrestling coaches, consider transferring five thousand dollars from the budget reserve to musical production, and the board will consider accepting the student activity budget and sales project potential for Middle School Cheerleading.
