GRAND ISLAND, Neb. -- A school district in central Nebraska is looking for a buyer for one of its oldest facilities. 

According to a news release, Grand Island Public Schools is putting the Wyandotte Building up for sale. The building is widely known as the “old Starr building” and has housed one of the GISH Academies, the grades 9-12 Newcomers Program, and the high school Skills Academy. 

The 30,000-square-foot building was built in 1975 as the original Starr Elementary School.

The sale includes the land, main building, and two modular facilities.

The district says that as part of a comprehensive budget and facilities review, they decided the building doesn’t fit their future plans. GIPS will be moving Wyandotte’s current programming to GISH, the Career Pathways Institute building, and the Islander Annex.

The GIPS Board of Education will be conducting a sealed bid process. There will be a pre-bid walk through Friday, April 19th at 10:00.

All interested are encourage to attend. 

Funds from the sale will be used to help fund future facility projects for the district.
