It would be easy to say the Galesburg Teachers Strike was WGIL’s Top Local Story of 2014. But, that’s not the only major issue the district had to confront this year, or is confronting.
Architects working on the new Silas Willard Elementary School sent information to the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency informing them of their plans to demolish and build new.
The District-205 Board at a special meeting yesterday voted to approve the design development documents for construction of the new school, estimated to cost 18-million dollars by the time work is completed in 2016.
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.
