The monthly rent for the facility would be around $10,000, according to Watson.

The center can’t find just any tenant though, because it needs to find an organization teaching low- to moderate-income students. The stipulation is from the terms of a loan the center received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, on which the center still owes around $390,000.

The Town of Glenville facilitates the loan payment for the center, but Supervisor Christopher Koetzle has previously said the town is not liable to pay it off.

There were previously discussions with the Eximius Education Foundation, which also has looked at the former Draper School in Rotterdam before deciding against it. If Eximius had moved into the center student enrollment would have exceed the space offered at the facility.
