SEPP Buying Harry L. School?

July 22, 2010 Updated Dec 8, 2005 at 12:17 PM EDT

SEPP, or Serving the Elderly Through Project Planning, had offered 300 thousand dollars for the school.
It plans to turn the school into low income housing for senior citizens at a cost of 8 million dollars.
The state denied SEPP a grant for the project earlier this year.
Now, the agency will reapply for money next year.
School Superintendent Larry Rowe says next Tuesday, he'll ask the board to give SEPP more time.
It should hear if SEPP gets the grant money this Spring.
Rowe says the district still believes senior housing is the best use for the old school.
In the meantime, SEPP would also help the district with maintenance costs at the school.
