(MARLETTE) -- The Marlette School Board met Monday and received an update from Superintendent Jeriann Patterson on the demolition of the former Bea McDonald Elementary School. Crews are moving forward and demolition should be completed sometime in January. Various agencies are interested in purchasing usable equipment inside the building. Superintendent Patterson said that anything the district can potentially use has been moved to the bus garage. The boilers will be sold because they can't be used in any of the district's buildings. Patterson added that bricks will be saved during the demolition process for community members who might be interested in having a piece of the old Bea McDonald Elementary School.
In other business, Superintendent Patterson informed the board that as of Monday, the November General Election results for the school board election was not yet available. The deadline for reporting is November 20 and the board of canvassers will meet to certify the results. Also, the Marlette School District's 2011-2012 audit is nearly complete and a report will be given at the December board meeting.
