The Bozeman School Board will decide Monday night how to proceed now that four developers have sent letters expressing interest in preserving the historic East Willson School building by turning it into condos or low-income housing.

School district administrators are recommending that the School Board vote to invite all four developers to take the next step by fleshing out their plans and set a goal of Jan. 31, 2013 for turning in detailed proposals. The four letters of interest came from Bridger Builders, the nonprofit Human Resources Development Council, The Englewood Group and McCarthy Properties.

The School Board also will hear an update on tax increment finance districts and honor LeAnne Yenny, a Sacajawea Middle School teacher who is a Montana teacher of the year finalist. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. In the Willson School boardroom.
