Sale or lease of unused school facilities to community or STEM schools

11/18/2019

Ohio Law now requires every school district board of education to offer unused school facilities it owns for lease or sale to the governing authorities of community schools or STEM schools located in the district’s boundaries. This applies to any facility that has not been used for school operation for the past year. The previous requirement stipulated that a school district must make the offer after a facility has been unused for two years. House Bill 166 changed that period to one year.
