Oregon-Davis Township Trustee Asks School Board for Land

Oregon-Davis School Superintendent, Dr. Steve Disney

The Oregon-Davis School Board heard a presentation of a request for the purchase of some school property at its most recent meeting.

“We heard a presentation by the Township Trustee with the investigation to build and go after property for a new fire station in Hamlet and they’re looking at the property where the old school used to sit,” said Superintendent Dr. Steve Disney.

The property is located across from the Starke County Fairgrounds. Dr. Disney said the request was for six acres of a 15 acre track.

In other school business:

The Board heard a report from Mr. Matt Bertasso, the Director of Instructional Technology, on allowing high school students to take their computers home with them. The Board also opened gasoline bids. The only bid was from the Starke County Co-op for $3.40 a gallon. The board also conducted its budget hearing.
