Officials are pondering the plan in part because the district has a structural budget deficit of between $3-4 million per year. They also know Carroll University is looking for growth opportunities and additional space in their downtown area.
- The Lindholm Administrative Building, 222 Maple Avenue
- Randall STEM Elementary School, 114 S. Charles Street
District officials noted in a news release that they are hosting an informational session at Randall STEM on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. The meeting will take place in the gym. The topic of the informational session will be the proposed sale of the Randall Building to Carroll University. Students and staff would be relocated to the vacant Whittier Building (1103 S. East Avenue) for the 2023-24 school year and beyond.
As for the Lindholm Building, staff would be relocated to the vacant Blair Building (301 Hyde Park Avenue).
Officials say the sale of these buildings "would further reduce the district building footprint and allow us to utilize all district facilities within our portfolio while we continue to plan for the future," the release says.
The conversations with Carroll University have resulted in an offer to purchase both buildings.
Lastly, the SDW Board of Education plans to hold a special meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 27 to consider the sale of the buildings to Carroll University.
