The hearing, one of two required by law before the property can be sold, will begin at 5 p.m. in the Central Services Building, 216 E. Fourth St.
The hearing will precede a 6 p.m. executive session — scheduled for information only, according to the agenda — and a regular session that will start at 7 p.m.
Fairview Elementary at 166 Lake Farm Road about 5 miles east of Port Angeles was closed in 2007 because of declining enrollment.
Fairview students were moved to the Roosevelt school building, which became an elementary school while middle school students from Roosevelt transferred to Stevens Middle School.
In December, the School Board declared the campus — a 9.48-acre parcel with a building that is about 26,568 square feet — surplus property and directed Superintendent Jane Pryne to begin the process of selling it.
Several groups have toured the school, Pryne has said.
An appraisal in 2010 set the school property’s value at $1,055,000.
Funds from the sale of the property would be put into a capital building fund to pay for the studies and architectural plans for new schools, district officials have said.
The building was constructed in the 1960s. An addition was built from 1976-1978.
No merchantable timber
The property fronts upon a small lake, has no salable timber, and a portion of it would be subject to the protective wetlands buffer and associated setbacks, the district said.
There is no merchantable timber on the property.
Utilities at the site include water, electrical power, phone and television cable.
