Sale of Garrison

  • On June 23, 2020, the Board of Education declared Garrison Elementary School surplus to the educational needs of the district in accordance with Education Code sections 17455 et seq.  In June 2020, a Notice of Surplus Property Sale was published in the local newspaper and related priority offers to public entities were provided by mail. Interested, eligible entities were encouraged to submit a written offer to the Deputy Superintendent of Business Services by September 28, 2020.

    On September 14, 2021, the Board of Education held a public hearing to receive public input on requesting a waiver of certain portions of the statutory surplus property disposition process for the sale of Garrison.  The waiver would remove certain procedural restrictions regarding how the District disposes of the Property, specifically the restrictive bidding requirements.  This would allow the District to publicly solicit and evaluate competitive offers and select the offer that is in the District’s best interest after consideration of a number of factors including, but not limited to, offer price.  Accordingly, the Board of Education approved Resolution No. 06 (21-22), which authorized the District to move forward in requesting a waiver.  Any resulting purchase and sale agreement would be brought back to this Board for review and approval.

    On October 12, 2021, the Board of Education approved Resolution No. 14 (21-22), stating that the District has complied with the requirements of California Education Code section 17464(c) and offered the Property to the appropriate designated entities, is in the process of negotiating terms of sale of a portion of the Property with the City of Oceanside, but also now wishes to sell the remainder of the Property to an appropriate purchaser.  With the approval of the resolution, the District intends to sell the Property to an entity to be identified by the District as providing the terms that are in the best interest of the District, to be identified after review of several proposals.

    On January 18, 2022, the Board of Education approved the sale of approximately 3 acres of Garrison Elementary School to the City of Oceanside via Resolution No. 22 (21-22).  Upon approval, the District and City of Oceanside entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement.

    On November 15, 2022, the Board of Education approved the sale of approximately 8 acres of Garrison Elementary School to TTLC Management, Inc. via Resolution No. 16 (22-23).  Upon approval, the District and TTLC Management, Inc. entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement.
