The Purchase Line School Board last night got an update on their effort to sell the North Elementary School property, and accepted an unusual offer from an anonymous donor.
District solicitor Ron Repak said that the process to sell the North Elementary School property requires filing a petition for a “quiet title," which is necessary because the district owns the property, but the deed on file is in the name of a defunct organization which was created to fund district building programs when the elementary school was built.
It may be as early as January before the building title is free and clear to Purchase Line. At that point, the board can continue with the sale process by determining which method of sale is best.
Also last nightm, the board accepted an offer from an anonymous donor who wants to make sure that the dental health in the Purchase Line school district is not overlooked. Board Member Tom McCracken said he was approached by the donor, who wanted to contribute enough money to purchase electric toothbrushes for the entire student body. McCracken said the donor believed in the importance of dental health as it relates to kids.
The district will tally how many adult and children's toothbrushes will be needed. The one requirement from the donor was that the school nurses give children proper directions as to how to use the toothbrushes.
