The Galesburg School Board will go back to the drawing board to figure out how to sell Cooke Elementary School.

That’s because the board this afternoon voted to reject both of the bids received for the just-closed facility:  one from West Central Community Services Head Start for $200,000, and one from the Galesburg Rescue Mission for just over$279,000.
