Kingsbury Middle School is officially for sale. The asking price is $4 million.
The Douglas County School District board agreed to sell the parcel and buildings at its Jan. 10 meeting. This was one of many votes during the last few years about the closed site.
The 36,000-square-foot school sits on 10 acres of pristine lake ridge property above Lake Village in Stateline.
Greg Felton told the board that property like this doesn’t come along that often and if the district’s circumstances were to change, it may be impossible to buy land at Lake Tahoe.
“He was right,” Superintendent Lisa Noonan told Lake Tahoe News after the meeting.
But Noonan added, “This was a carefully considered process. We’ve looked at projections, at the enrollment trends. The board feels we owe it to the students and district to go forward. (The money) goes to capital projects that do help children in the district.”
The board is expected to look at any offers at its April 10 3:30pm meeting at Zephyr Cove.
“If there are no buyers, then we have to look at fixing up Kingsbury and having a lease arrangement,” Noonan said.
