Board plans auction of Cuba Elementary

Staff report

The auction of Cuba Elementary School in Graves County and the adjoining property is set for 3:30 p.m. June 18 at the school. The sale will be conducted by Bunch Brothers Auction and Realty Company of Wingo, according to Paul Schaumburg, public relations director for Graves County Schools.

He said the board of education chose the company in a specially called meeting Thursday. In previous meetings, the board declared the facility surplus property and set the date and time for the sale. The board voted to close Cuba Elementary School by a 4-1 vote in December

"The decision to close Cuba Elementary School was a difficult one and is the result of years of unsuccessfully attempting to increase the school's enrollment," Superintendent Kim Harrison said. "Every step of the way, we have let it be known that this was a possibility and that if it came to closing the school, we would do so regretfully ... with cutbacks from state and federal government, our funds are limited and closing it now is a necessary financial decision."

School board attorney David Hargrove said the pending legal action from a group of four Graves County residents will currently not affect the property sale.

Students who would have attended Cuba Elementary School will attend Wingo or Sedalia in the fall.
