School board approves sale of school to Pembroke
bryan county schools

The Bryan County Board of Education voted Thursday night to approve the sale of Bryan County Elementary and a 6.59 acre site to Pembroke, a week after the city OK'd its part of the deal.

Pembroke has entered into agreements with the Bryan County Board of Education to buy both the 6.59 acres on which sits the playground being used by Bryan County Elementary and the school itself, once the new BCES opens.

The city will use SPLOST funds for the playground, which it will use as the site for a public safety complex. The playground site will cost $187,500.

The school, which includes classrooms, a cafeteria and a gym, will be purchased for $812,500 by Pembroke's Downtown Development Authority. A number of possuble uses include senior housing and recreation.

School board members said the deal took two years to negotiate.
