The McCracken County School board plans to relocate their central office on Berger Road to the former Reidland Middle School building in an effort to save on utility costs.
Reidland Middle schools students will move to the old Reidland High School building next school year, which will leave the middle school building vacant.
The board approved the move Wednesday night at a regular meeting and will declare the property as surplus at the end of the current school year, once it’s approved by the Kentucky Department of Education.
Public Affairs Director Jayme Jones said the school board staff is currently split throughout several buildings and having the entire staff under one roof will save $175,000 on yearly maintenance costs.
The board is looking at a tentative June move-in date.
