CSD in Discussion with City To Buy Beacon Hill For Potential Central Office LocationDecatur Metro | April 6, 2012 | 11:31 am
With CSD enrollment continuing to rise at a rapid pace, it looks all but certain that CSD’s current central office location, Westchester Elementary, will soon need to revert back to its original use. So CSD staff is already looking into new Central Office locations.
From the Superintendent Phyllis Edwards’ letter (under Superintendent’s Report on the agenda) to the Decatur School Board prior to the April 10th meeting…
We continue to meet with City of Decatur personnel regarding the possibility of renovating Beacon Hill and having that become the School System Central Office. There is a joint meeting scheduled between the City Commissioners and CSD School Board on April 16th in the City Commission Room at 6:30. You will hear plans for the complex at that time. We do not have firm information yet; having only met with lead players and legal departments to see if it is possible for CSD to buy and own a renovated building.
