The Huntington Beach City School District board is scheduled to vote Thursday morning on the outlines of a deal to sell its closed Le Bard school site in return for $7 million, 3.5 acres of unused land near the Huntington Beach Generating Station power plant, and $400,000 in clean-up money for the city’s parcel of land.
“We’ve made some progress,” Board President Celia Jaffe said. “But there’s definitely more to negotiate.”
The Le Bard site currently holds the district’s offices, including the board’s meeting location. But its playing fields are used by youth programs like the Seaview Little League.
The city land would be offered as a way for the district to move its bus maintenance headquarters off of the grounds of Dwyer Middle School, or possibly as a site for a new district office, officials said.
