PEMBERVILLE - Now that school is back in session, Eastwood Schools administrators are focusing on where to move central office and bus garage operations.
According to a community email sent Sunday by Superintendent Brent Welker, the former Dowling Elementary School will be reopened for central office use, and the bus garage will move to the ag department at the high school.
The former elementary, located on Dowling Road near Tanglewood Golf Course, has been vacant for five years.
This action was chosen over placing modular classrooms on the district's central campus. Insurance money will be used to reopen the building.
Welker said Thursday that he briefly considered Webster Elementary, but space is limited there. 
With a nursing school on the second floor and preschool on the first floor, there were only two rooms available.
The central office staff is currently in a trailer on the main campus, but has to be out by Feb. 20.
Welker said staff will move into the Dowling building over Presidents' Day weekend.

Wood County Prosecutor Paul Dobson nearly lost several employees to higher-paying jobs and has asked for more flexibility in the county’s salary schedule.
Dobson explained to commissioners Thursday that he was able to keep two employees last month by giving pay increases not paid for with general fund money. Dobson said he’s not against pay scales as a general concept, but he expressed several concerns over how the scale currently used by the county could affect staffing in his office.
When Molly Mack, formerly chief of the prosecutor’s civil division, became judge of Perrysburg Municipal Court in January, she sought several employees for her new staff whom Dobson had been planning to assign to in-house title processing, rather than hiring an outside contractor to do the work.
Adjusting the employees’ job duties would have taken time, so the employees could have accepted Mack’s offer if Dobson hadn’t swiftly matched it. And whether pay increases were authorized would have been up to Archer Consulting, the group that administers the salary system.

A Millbury man pleaded guilty to an amended charge related to an offense against a student while he was a substitute teacher at Lake High School in 2011.
Jacob Kubuske, 29, appeared Thursday in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Robert Pollex.
Kubuske pleaded guilty to one count of attempted menacing by stalking, a fifth-degree felony, as part of a plea agreement.
He was previously indicted on a single count of sexual battery, a third-degree felony.
Prosecuting attorney Gwen Howe-Gebers said the plea agreement was reached after discussions with the victim, as well as Ted Riley, Kubuske's attorney.
In presenting the facts of the case had the matter proceeded to trial, Howe-Gebers said that between June 1 and June 30, 2011, while a substitute at the school, the then-17-year-old victim and Kubuske had what was termed an "interest" in each other.
Later the victim indicated she was no longer interested. However, Kubuske reportedly twice attempted to have further involvement with her, which she indicated was unwanted.
