Law complicates planned sale of elementary school in Indiana

Sheridan school board can't sell land if Adams Township board wants property

An Indiana law governing what happens to school property no longer needed for educational purposes has put a temporary hold on the sale of Adams Elementary School in Sheridan, Ind. The Sheridan School Board has accepted the highest bid--$85,000--for the 1930 brick three-story schoolhouse, which will close at the end of the school year. But the law requires the school board to offer the property as a gift for park and recreation purposes to the township that owned the property before the school was consolidated. If the township board refuses the offer, the School Board may sell the property.
