SCR-I District Enters Lease Agreement For New Lifetime Learning Center

A recent real estate deal will help the Scotland County R-I School District meet special education and will allow the project to be fully paid for by federal funds.

The board approved a lease agreement for the district to rent the metal building owned by Otho and Dorva Harbur, which is located just across the street from the North Elementary School. The building will house a Lifetime Learning Center for students of the district that require federally mandated special education programming.

Superintendent LeRoy Huff told the board that the need for the program at SCR-I has accelerated over the years to the point where the school was faced with either paying the tuition and transportation costs to send students to another district's learning center or to build one locally. Huff noted that the district's attorney for special education dealings had recently informed him that the board simply could no longer go without a learning center, leaving only the two options.

After discussing the program needs and requirements, the board considered the available property and reviewed a rental proposal for the building across from the school. The district will enter a five-year lease on the building.

Huff stressed that the lease agreement was the best option for the district because it allowed the expenditure of federal funds to pay the entire cost of the learning center acquisition. If the building had been purchased or a new facility had been built, federal funds would not have paid for the acquisition, meaning local tax revenues would have been required.

The board voted 7-0 to enter the lease agreement.
