P 7300 Site/Facilities Retirement
Certain school buildings may no longer be adequate for instructional purposes and should be used to benefit the School District or public in other ways. In determining when a facility is to be retired from regular school purposes, the Board will be guided by a combination of factors, to include:
- Review of the in-depth demographic studies and population groupings.
- Age and current physical condition of the building, its operating systems and program facilities.
- Adequacy of site, location, accessibility, surrounding development, traffic patterns, and other environmental conditions.
- Reassignment of children, including alternative plans, according to Board policy.
- Transportation factors including number of children bused, time, distance and safety.
- Alternate uses of the building.
- Plant operation
- Capital investment
- Alternate use
If the Board determines to close a school, it will first consider other uses that the School District might make of the building; then it will consider its sale. Sale or lease of any District facility will be conducted as set forth in Regulation 3380 - Sale/Lease of Real Property.
The historic value of any building will also be considered by the Board. It may take special action to provide for a building's preservation.
