  • Current: Vacant & Unused School Buildings

Beginning in 2005, the Indiana General Assembly (IGA) enacted a statutory provision whereby public school corporations were required to offer school buildings no longer being used for classroom instruction to charter schools for purchase or lease, subject to the requirements of IC 20-26-7-1. Since then, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) has administered this program, acting as a conduit between public school corporations and interested charter schools.

On this day, January 29, 2024, Per IC 20-26-7.1-4(d), the IDOE is notifying all interested parties of the availability of the three schools listed below for purchase or lease under IC 20-26-7.1. Please email unused.buildings@doe.in.gov for further information.
