The property parcel holds a septic system and would not hold any value for the North Lawrence Community School to hold the property.

The Springville Community Academy originally proposed purchasing the property for $10,000 prior to this agreement which was rejected by NLCS.

However, SCA had the property appraised and gave the option for NLCS to have their own appraisal of the property, which NLCS declined. The property was appraised at $20,000.

Springville Academy students have the option of either attending Bedford North Lawrence High School or Eastern High School due to the close proximity of both schools.
