Two Washington County elementary schools that were closed last spring could remain vacant for a little longer.

Warren local school's superintendent Tom Gibbs says the buildings that were once Cutler and Bartlett schools will not be used by the school system.

A resolution was passed in December authorizing an auction for the buildings.

Now, the next step is to have the appraisal, then pass a resolution on whether or not to sell to the highest bidder.

No word yet on when the appraisal will take place.

    If the Warren Local School District residents had passed the levy, all this could have been avoided.

    What a joke this whole district is we have kid's on top of kid's! Then the PTO of LH is sad,the principal pathetic,and most of all the spine sucking trouble makers who have nothing better to do than gossip to make themselves look good the only thing we have in our favor is the teachers love these kid's!!!! I believe it is only going to get worse because Mr.Gibb's is trying to bully us parents into a levy. I wanna know when some of these parents are going to focus on these kid's as much as they do gossiping about peoples pain....My advise homeschool.

    All tax-paying residents of the Warren school district should call upon the superintendent and school board to demonstrate that, at the end of the current fiscal year, projected cost savings that were used to justify the closing of the Bartlett and Cutler schools were realized. If that should turn out to not be the case, all this has been a waste and ALL tax-paying Warren school district citizens should be outraged.

    It was the dumbest thing they did to close those 2 schools.I went to Bartlett and my daughter did to and one grandson went to Cutler.I also have 7 brothers and sisters that went to Cutler and Bartlett.Go take a look in BV and Little Hocking.The kids are not getting the one on one they need and deserve.It doesnt matter what they say about the cost to keep them open.It cost before and I bet we will be better for it than the kids today will be by going to school in trailers outside,eating lunch in an auditoriums,and their cramped little classrooms.Its not just our Bartlett and Cutler kids its the BV and Little Hocking kids to.I would love to be able to pull my grandsons out of there before they have to go outside to a trailer to go to school and be so cramped in every place in the school.It was the dumbest move I have ever seen in this school district.
