After considering the City's offer to acquire the property for $1 with the requirement to demolish the buildings, the board decided it was in the best interest of the public to determine if the property had any cur- rent value to a developer. During the months of Jul) August and early Septem-. ber, the property was offered for sale for residential development use with the understanding the District would demolish one or all of the buildings. The City of Norwalk supported this action. The board received one offer from a developer. The board considered this offer at a meeting on September 16. It was determined the offer was insufficient based on the appraisal report. The board took action to reject the offer submitted by a hous- ing developer, advertise for demolition bids and then reconsider the sale at a future date. The school district will be hosting a public informa- tional meeting Tuesda) Oct. 15, at 6:30 p.m. at the east end of the Eastview 8/9 cafeteria. The purpose of this meeting is to provide information about the demolition project and timeline.

"Additionally, they will be gaining practical skills in problem solving, quality assurance, project management and communications. Skills that are greatly desired in our field." Matthew Burch of Cumming is among the compet- ing students. Students will be scheduling visits to each high school in the college's 10-county area to present the applica- tions they have developed. They will also answer ques- tions regarding the transition from high school to col- lege, paid internship opporfunities available, job place- ment percentages and average starting salaries for soft- ware developers.
