USD 443 Board of Education looks at transitioning the current administration building

 

June 12, 2019

Dodge City, Kansas – Now that construction is well underway for the new administration building, it is time to decide the best plan of action for the current facility.  USD 443 BOE is committed to a plan of action that best serves the Dodge City community and the district.  Because of several discussions, USD 443 Board of Education voted 7-0 at the June 10 board meeting to follow the path proposed by District Administration and Board Attorney Clayton Kerbs.

First, the school district will issue a Request for Proposal (“RFP”) making the public aware that the building will be available for occupancy around July 2020.  This RFP will include notice to potential buyers of known building deficiencies.  Interested parties will be requested to provide a comprehensive plan and proof of financial ability to rectify the defects. The Board will evaluate all responses for a viable sale.

Secondly, if no proposals are received, the school district will issue another RFP. If no bids are received, the school district will list the building for sale.

Finally, if there is not a suitable buyer, the Board will consider demolition or donating the building. Before demolition, the school district could recycle and repurpose as much of the building as possible.

Interested parties may schedule a tour of the building by contacting the Public Information Office at 620-371-1023 or email Kerri Baker at [email protected]. Information concerning the buildings condition is available at the Business Operations Office, Phone: 620-371-100.
