Contrary to information released by the Salt Lake School District Monday, the Salt Lake Board of Education has not agreed to sell South High.
Board member Lorna Matheson told the Deseret News Tuesday morning that she had not been polled by phone about her vote on whether to sell South High School to the state for $1 million plus $200,000 in concurrent enrollment credits. "We didn't even vote in executive session," she said, referring to a closed-door session that the board had last week.The state wants the school for the downtown campus of Salt Lake Community College.
District spokeswoman Jan Keller said Matheson is correct - no poll was taken. Keller thought a poll was taken because business manager Gary Harmer had telephoned board members about property matters.
Matheson believes the board will approve the sale, but not until at least June 21.
