After a technology staffer failed to put a minimum bid on a portable classroom, the unit sold for $1 on eBay.
The East Stroudsburg (PA) Area School District purchased seven portables for $62,000 apiece during a high school renovation. One of the portables was declared excess and sold. However, without a minimum, the unit was sold for a buck, much to the consternation of the school board, which ordered an investigation into how the incident could have occurred.
Minimum bids for other trailers has been set at $25,000.
