CENTRAL, La. (AP) - Superintendent Michael Faulk has laid out his ideas on what the Central school system should do with 29 acres, which for decades served as the home of Central Middle School.
The Advocate reports Faulk is proposing to spend $5 million to tear down six of the nine buildings on the former Central Middle campus and fix up the exteriors of the three remaining buildings.
In addition to setting aside space for leasing to other government agencies, he says the three buildings left would have enough room to house the school district's central office staff and establish a small alternative school and a professional development center.
The proposal is one of four ballot propositions that Faulk is planning to place before voters in the Nov. 16 elections.
