Camas School Board Approves Sale of Land - 09/18/15
At its regular meeting on September 15, 2015, the Camas School District Board of Directors approved the sale of 49.56 acres of surplus real estate property. The property is located approximately one-quarter mile south of the Camas High School. It is bounded by Lacamas Park to the south; vacant land for future phases of the Hills of Round Lake to the east; and Waterleaf and Lacamas Summit subdivisions to the west.
The property was initially acquired by the Camas School District in 1997 as a potential site for a new Camas High School. Due to the acquisition of the Webberley property where the high school was ultimately constructed, this property was declared surplus in 2006. It has been marketed off and on since that time. On October 13, 2014, the Board adopted Resolution 14-02, which again reiterated that the real property was surplus to District needs and authorized it to be sold. On September 14, 2015, the Board adopted Resolution 15-01, which authorized the sale and appointed Superintendent Mike Nerland to execute the documents necessary for the closing.
The transaction was completed, and closing occurred effective September 16, 2015. The sales price obtained by the District was $5,887,900.

Most adults can remember a special teacher who made a significant difference in our lives. Now is the time to honor that teacher in Camas' first Legendary Teacher Day.

Set to take place annually on the fourth Thursday in September, Legendary Teacher Day is intended as a day of tribute to that teacher who impacted learning for you or your children in a positive and memorable way. To participate, simply identify your Legendary Teacher and contact them with a "Thank You" for the positive influence that they had on your education.
