All proceeds from events will go toward permanent improvement expenditures for the district.

Greenon Local Schools will be hosting auctions beginning this weekend for items from the old schools, according to the district’s website.

“As part of the preparation for the opening of the new Greenon schools K-12 campus in the fall of 2021, Greenon schools will host a series of public auctions in partnership with Govdeals.com beginning Saturday, May 1,” the website stated.

The auction will begin with a community auction for members to bid to purchase locker doors from Greenon Junior/Senior High School as a result of requests from the community. It will be open online from May 1-6.

After the community locker door auction, public auctions for items inside Indian Valley, Greenon Junior/Senior High School and Enon Primary will be held.

“All proceeds from the auctions will only be used for permanent improvement expenditures - maintenance, equipment and repairs that will last at least five years - as required by Ohio law,” the website stated.
