The building, purchased by the district in 1993, was placed back on the market by Dr. Dean Goewey and the district in 2016 so the district could enter an era of restructuring and consolidation. In the summer of 2017, the district’s central offices relocated onto school grounds, including a wing of Leighton Elementary and the Oswego High School.
“The Oswego City School District is an integral part of our community’s infrastructure,” said Thomas Schneider, President and CEO of Pathfinder Bank. “We look forward to maintaining the Education Center building, so it can remain a vital business pillar in the heart of our city.”
Dr. Goewey said he is thrilled the sale is complete.
“It has been a pleasure to make this happen for the district, as well as the community,” he said.
Pathfinder Bank plans to put the building to use in a variety of ways, including support of the City of Oswego’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative. Meanwhile, the Oswego City School District will continue to function in its current locations.
