Background: In March 2020, while the neighborhood went into lockdown, Oak Grove School District Board of Trustees issued a resolution to sell the Glider School property. In May 2021 they received 4 offers from developers for dense residential housing. On June 17th, they voted on which developer to continue working with: https://www.thetruelifecompanies.com. As of 1/20/2022, OGSD voted unanimously to SELL the Glider School Property. Our next stage is oppose the City rezoning. City Council votes will be in 2023.

Share with your friends in ALL of OGSD's areas - this is a district wide problem. There will be future campus closures and what happens here sets a precedence for the entire district. Further, the current budget issues do not give us assurance that any funds from proceeds will be used responsibly.
