(MAILTRIBUNE) — The Rogue River School Board voted unanimously Tuesday to transfer the deed for the former Evans Valley Elementary School site to a nonprofit group supporting homeschool students.

The board had been in talks with the Evans Valley Community Association for more than a year about the future of the school site, since it was closed in 2011 and students were transferred to nearby Rogue River Elementary School.

Since the school’s closure, a group of homeschool students who didn’t want to attend Rogue River Elementary began studying together, and several families formed the Evans Valley Community Association.
