Champion Township Trustees have assumed ownership of 10 of the 13 acres of school board property formerly housing the 100-year-old elementary school. Three of the thirteen acres have been retained by the Board of Education to maintain the school bus garages and school maintenance building. The ten acres were part of the purchase price when the Board purchased 20-plus acres on Mahoning Avenue from the Trustees for the site of the new PK-8 school complex.
The Board of Education continues to own the 29 acres on Alva Avenue. Twenty-two of those acres are leased to the Champion Athletic Club (CAC) for its use as sports fields and parking. The CAC will also mow the remaining 7 acres which house the former Champion Middle School now that the building has been demolished.
