PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Pierre's school board has accepted a $351,000 purchase bid for Washington School.
Business Manager Darla Mayer tells KCCR radio that the three local residents who submitted the bid have five days to accept the bid. That period began Friday.
Jedrey Baumann, Joshua Lieberman and Richard Bauer had the high bid of two bids submitted for the building last summer.
Mayer says the purchase bid includes the building and everything attached to the building such as chalkboards and smart boards. The movable items in the building, such as desks and chairs, will either be used in the new Pierre elementary school or sold as surplus.
She says there are no restrictions on the use of the building depending on city zoning rules
