CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Natrona County School District has found a potential buyer for one former elementary school and another is appraised for sale.

The issue of closing and selling off schools in Natrona County is contentious. The town of Mills unsuccessfully sued the Natrona County School District over the closure of two schools.

Now, school district officials say a potential buyer has submitted a bid over the roughly $350,000 appraisal price for Grant Elementary in Casper.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports the school board will consider the bid July 11. School officials aren’t disclosing the exact bid amount.
Dennis Bay with the school district says Mills Elementary in Mills is appraised at $257,500 and will be advertised for sale soon. The district also is closing Mountain View Elementary in Mills.
