District leases Jackson

Region V BOCES to move in


The Jackson Elementary School building will see continued life under a lease to Region V BOCES.

Sweetwater County School District No. 2 trustees voted in favor of leasing the building Tuesday night. The elementary school is scheduled to close at the end of the school year due to declining enrollment within the district.

The move, described by Superintendent Donna Little-Kaumo as a win-win for both the district and Region V BOCES, will lease five classrooms in the lower portion of the building.

The district benefits by not having to completely shutdown the building, which results in savings to the district. The district also receives access to specialized services offered through Region V BOCES. BOCES in turn receives space to grow programs offered through its Roosevelt Learning Center and provide services to more children in a building with better security than its current home.

The agreement calls for Region V BOCES to pay $21,420 to lease the building for nine months.
