A committee looking at what to do with three closed schools in the Tempe Elementary School District has selected one proposal to go forward for McKemy Middle School, but did not pick any of the proposed ideas for Meyer or Bustoz elementary schools.
The district received four proposals each for Bustoz and McKemy, and two for Meyer.
The governing board is scheduled to talk about the school repurposing process at a 6 p.m. study session Oct. 19 at the Sanchez Administration Building. It will include a discussion on what happens next in the process for Meyer and Bustoz. The board will also hear about the presentation from
the Tempe Community Action Agency for the McKemy campus.
The agency will present the plan at McKemy during a public forum 6 p.m. Oct. 24.
The plan would create a "social services" campus with administrative offices for the agency, food resources for families, classrooms for public education on budgeting and prenatal care and more.
