Bid to increase downtown Cleveland school presence

CLEVELAND (AP) — A Cleveland school board member wants the district to increase its downtown presence when it sells its center-city office headquarters.

The proposal comes from board member Eric Wobser. He wants to use the $4.5 million sale price of the district headquarters to create a new school downtown or expand one or both schools already there.

The headquarters building, near a new convention center and medical technology showcase exhibit hall, will be sold to a hotel chain.

According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/11c6ACb), the school board is scheduled to consider the proposal Tuesday night. Board President Denise Link expects members to back it.
