Tasked with analyzing five Ramona Unified School District properties, a Carlsbad firm has determined that two of them could be sold to net about $4 million for the district.
“The market is improving every day,” Eric Hall of Eric Hall & Associates told district trustees at their November meeting.

“So it’s not just about soap and bathrooms,” said Bob Stoody, school board president and FORUS member, referring to the vandal-proof soap dispensers and soap the group donated and installed in all secondary school bathrooms in the district before the start of the school year.
