Should public school land be leased for commercial use?


The Department of Education is looking for new ways to make money for improvements.

So it’s seeking ideas and business proposals from real estate development companies.

The goal is to turn select public school land into money-making ventures, and that could mean for commercial or business use, or even housing.

Some of the locations the DOE hopes to develop are part of Kaimuki and Mckinley High Schools.     

The proposals are due by Oct. 1.
