Janesville School District looks into buying a building
JANESVILLE--The Janesville School District will take a look at avoiding lease payments by buying a building for its charter schools.
A school board committee discussed the idea at a meeting Tuesday night.
The idea is a long way from being a plan, but the committee instructed the administration to come up with a detailed description of what an ideal building would look like.
The discussion focused on:
Rock River Charter School, housed in the first two floors of 31 W. Milwaukee St., with an annual lease cost of $52,815.
TAGOS Leadership Academy at Arrow Park on North Parker Drive.
The Truancy Abatement and Transitional Education Center, also at Arrow Park. The annual lease for both Arrow Park programs costs $139,977.
The Janesville Virtual Academy at Jefferson Elementary School, a building the district owns.
