The closed Highlands Support Center in Fawn on Monday, July 8, 2019. The school district is taking sealed bids for the property, formerly an elementary school and primary center, and has set a lowest acceptable bid of $500,000.

Bids to buy Highlands School District’s former elementary school in Fawn are due by noon July 29, according to an announcement from the district.

The district is selling the Highlands Support Center, which the school board voted in May to permanently close. It had previously been a primary center and elementary school.

The 30,000-square-foot school sits on nearly 15 acres at 5591 Ridge Road.

Bids exceeding $500,000 “will be given preferential treatment,” the district wrote on a bid form.

School board President Debbie Beale previously said the district had set a $500,000 minimum bid based on an appraisal.

The bid form asks bidders to specify their proposed use for the property — residential, commercial or industrial — and to provide a description of their would-be project.

Bid packets are available at the district administration office behind Highlands High School in Harrison and the district’s website.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
