A new source of revenue for the FCBOE

sniffles5's picture

Thinking outside the box here....

Fayette county has a tremendous oversupply of capacity. We have mothballed schools.

Henry county is bursting at the seams and has embarked on a crash program to build schools.

Why not rent out our unused schools? Rent them the entire facility on a three year lease, Henry pays all the utilities. 500K for the brand new unused Indian River, maybe 350K for the shuttered East Fayette.

Win-win. Henry county gets some breathing room for their chronically overcrowded schools (and no trailers for their kids!) and Fayette gets some income from idle assets.

Fayette revisits the lease in three years and makes a determination as to whether to continue the leasing or to take back the schools for our own population needs.
