Think of it as a really strange, online garage sale.
As Colorado Springs School District 11 prepares to close several schools, it is offloading excess supplies. The assortment of items is somewhat comical: Steamers big enough to feed that dinner party of 100 you've always wanted to have; plastic serving spoons; power drills and hand saws. But hey, there's a little something (or a big something) for everyone.
As part of the District 11 Optimization of Utilization plan, many activities are taking place in order to move several schools and repurpose buildings. This is a BIG Job!
In an effort to be wise stewards of taxpayer money, the District is taking several strides to ensure materials and equipment that are no longer needed in our district are responsibly recycled or auctioned to the public. Therefore, the District is hosting an online auction, which is open to the public who may bid on auction items by visiting this URL.
An onsite public viewing to see some of the auction items District 11 has available will be May 8, 3:30-5 p.m., at Wasson High School, 2115 Afton Way. The media and the public are invited to attend. In addition, the District is collaborating with Goodwill Industries to determine how to reuse or recycle old, outdated materials. The Optimization of Utilization project manager will be available for interviews.
