ILWACO - "This starts us moving in the right direction," said Ocean Beach School District Superintendent Rainer Houser after the school board's vote Monday night to enter into negotiations with the Friends of Chinook School (FCS) on a 15-year lease agreement for the old school. The FCS needed at least a 13-year lease in place in order to apply for a grant.

The agreement, which will be hammered out by the two parties' lawyers, will feature a progress clause which can invalidate the lease if substantial progress toward purchasing the facility is not made within the intervals agreed upon.
