Whenever you live in one place for a long time, you're bound to accumulate a lot of stuff.
With schools that have been open for decades, the Warren County School District isn't exempt.
Construction at Eisenhower and Sheffield, that will convert those buildings to K-12 schools, is slated to be completed before the beginning of next school year, which will allow several other dominoes to then fall.
Central Office will likely relocate to the current Russell Elementary School from the Warren State Hospital grounds and Sugar Grove, Russell and Allegheny Valley elementary schools will shutter.
That leaves a lot of records that will be on the move.
Superintendent Dr. William Clark told the school board at its meeting Monday evening that there is a need to form a Records Management Committee to establish policy or practice regarding how to handle those records.
He said the relocation of Central Office provides "a good time to purge files" to ensure that "we are not just moving everything (but) moving what we need."
A representative from the board is needed to serve in one of the positions on that committee. The post will be appointed by the school board president.
Clark said that he wants "to get that committee rolling so what we are moving is necessary."
He explained that the policy or practice established by that committee could also pave the way for records to go digital, should the district elect that course in the future.
At a previous committee meeting, administration laid out a plan that utilizes all of the Russell site as Central Office. A floor plan for the move will likely be presented to committees later this month.
That could potentially mean that the Learning Enrichment Center, also located on the state hospital grounds, moves to Allegheny Valley in Clarendon, also the site of the district's server farm, once that facility is closed.
