FORMER SPRAYBERRY CENTER SPOT UP FOR SALE

By WVUA 23 Student Reporter Madison MacLean

The Tuscaloosa County School Board is trying to sell the former Sprayberry Education Center on Rice Mine Road in Northport. It housed the special needs program since 1978, but the organization has since moved to the old Lloyd Wood building at 2300 26th Ave. in Northport. Now, the board wants to let the old Sprayberry and its 6 acres of land go.

“We decided to sell the building once we renovated Lloyd Wood and moved the students out,” said Deputy Superintendent David Patrick. “It’s an older building and not set up very well to meet today’s needs and the special needs students that were housed there.”

Bids will be accepted until noon on Jan. 26.
