Community Meeting Scheduled for the Proposed Sale of Hillcrest Elementary
A community meeting to discuss the proposed sale of Hillcrest Elementary School will be held Wednesday, July 6 at 7 p.m. in the Hillcrest Elementary Library. The local non-profit Athletics for Education and Success has submitted a formal offer of purchase to the Board of Education and Fort Dodge Community School District. Before taking action, the District would like to hold a community meeting in which residents of Fort Dodge and the Hillcrest neighborhood may address questions and gain valuable information regarding the sale of the building. During the meeting, Executive Director Charles Clayton and staff members of AFES will share more about the program and explain their proposed use of the facility. At a Board meeting on June 27, Clayton said the school building will allow the program to expand, while still serving the kids and community of Fort Dodge.
The Board of Education and Fort Dodge Community School District maintains their commitment to the community, seeking to find a proposal that will best serve the people of Fort Dodge. Following the meeting, the Board will set a date to resolve the sale.
