ELIZABETHTON — The old Range Elementary School may soon be on the auction block.
The Carter County Board of Education approved a motion by
newly-elected Chairman Ronnie McAmis to authorize board attorney John
Banks and Carter County Finance Director Ingrid Deloach to explore ways
to dispose of the school building and property. The school was closed at
the end of the past school year in May and most of the children
transferred to Central Elementary.
Banks said he has already looked at the school board’s deed to the
Range property and said he found “no reverters or strings attached. It
looks like a real clean deed.”
