Sylvania board looking at other sites for school

Sylvania school officials are looking into alternatives to moving Central Elementary to a controversial site on Wolfinger Road, school board president James Nusbaum said last night.

“Some things have shaken loose … that would be in everyone's best interest for us to evaluate,” Mr. Nusbaum said after a Board of Education meeting. He declined to elaborate, saying that would compromise the district's negotiating position.

At a contentious public meeting March 31, critics of the Wolfinger site clashed verbally with school officials and site supporters over whether that property, for which the school district holds an $800,000 purchase option, is buildable.

Mr. Nusbaum said he expects to have more to report about possible alternative sites within a few weeks.
