In response to the concerns shared at the recent Farmedge Property Forum, the district plans to slow down the process and seek community input. As a result, the district will solicit volunteers to study the Farmedge property in more detail. In particular, the district hopes to explore the sale of the property with a cross-section of key stakeholders from the school community. The committee will be charged with the responsibility of investigating a number of new options, including the following examples:
1. To sell the entire Farmedge property. Included in the sale would be the addition of a new library and school district office at this location.
2. To sell the Karopczyc building and property. Keep Gallow for the public library, district office, and SCOPE pre-school.
3. To sell the Gallow building and property. Keep Karopczyc for the public library, district office, and SCOPE preschool.
4. Status quo. Operate and maintain the property as we do today.
We plan to send out a mailing shortly asking for resident volunteers.
