North Lawrence Community Schools Working On Cleaning Out School Buildings

(BEDFORD) – North Lawrence Community School employees are working on cleaning out the schools that are scheduled to be closed due to consolidation.

North Lawrence Community School employees remove items from Springville Elementary School.

Dumpsters could be seen at several of the schools this past week with school employees removing damaged items that can no longer be used.

“If a shelf or table has a missing screw or leg that is damaged it was hauled off. Other things that could be used for surplus were salvaged and put in a safe location for a future auction or use,” said Andrew Clampitt, Director of Communications for North Lawrence Community Schools.

Damaged items that could not be salvaged have been removed from several North Lawrence Community Schools this week.

WBIW contacted the school corporation after receiving several inquiries over the disposal of several items from area schools.

Parents were concerned over books, notebooks, and other items being disposed of by the school.

Fayetteville, Heltonville, Springville, and Stalker Elementary Schools were voted to be closed by the North Lawrence Community School Board earlier this year.

Andrew Clampitt told WBIW News that damaged items were disposed of. All other items will be salvaged for a future surplus auction or other use within the corporation.

The Stalker Elementary facility will be repurposed for other corporation uses and the remaining buildings will be sold at a later time.

Officials say the North Lawrence School Corporation is always wanting to be open and transparent with the taxpayers, employees, parents, and teachers.

Any concerns or questions can always be addressed by contacting the corporation at 812-279-3521.
