LANCASTER, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – Since the early 2000’s the Lancaster County School District has leased a part of the Barr Street Learning Center to the non-profit, Hope on the Hill, which has been using the building to create an after school sanctuary for Lancaster students, but now those with the non-profit are worried they could lose it.
The lease agreement is up and members of Hope on the Hill are worried the school district does not want re-negotiate a new deal for the property.
However we spoke with Lancaster School District leaders who say they are not looking to terminate the lease at this time but want to re look at the lease agreement.
Board Member Melvin Stroble told us by phone there has been miscommunication on why the lease agreement is being looked at.
Stroble also adding his comments on this story are his own and he is not speaking on behalf of the board.
CN2’s Zane Cina learns about their concerns and has a response from a school board member.
