CCCC trustees accept several resignations

 A proposal to purchase the Lincoln School property was accepted by the Unified School District 333 board of education during its January meeting Monday night at the Concordia Elementary School.
The board received two proposals for the property, and approved accepting the higher bid of $35,000 from James and Becky Kindel of Concordia.
Ron Lawrenz, Lawrence, submitted a bid of $32,500.
Closing on the property will occur 30 days after the signing of a purchase agreement between the buyers and the sellers.

 Originally, the district had contracted with Larry Lagasse Auction and Real Estate to auction off the Lincoln School property in November with a minimum bid of $100,000. There were no bids submitted during the auction.
I n other action taken during the meeting, the board approved a municipal resolution with Peoples Exchange Bank.
 An interlocal agreement with Smoky Hill/Central Kansas Education Service Center was approved by the board.
 The board approved a shared services agreement with the Learning Cooperative of North Central Kansas for Kathryn Brown, a paraprofessional.
Board members Pat Murk and Steve Wetter were appointed to the negotiation team.
The board was recognized during Board of Education Recognition Month.
