Gateway Gets New Site
Programs To Share Building On Southeast 14th Street
Posted: July 15, 2013 at 5 a.m.
Bentonville’s alternative education program will open the new school year in a new place.
At A Glance
The Bentonville School Board agreed in December to buy the building at 1000 and 1002 S.E. 14th St. for $2.5 million. That money came from the district’s reserve. The district is spending another $427,000 to renovate the space to fit the Gateway program’s needs. Half of the building is leased to Novar, an energy management company, for $13,000 per month.
District officials originally discussed including money to lease or purchase a building for a Gateway expansion in the June 2012 millage election. Administrators nixed that plan, however, in order to lower the cost of the millage.
