In SOUTH BASS ISLAND AND ISLANDERS By Thomas Huxley Langlois and Marina Holmes Langlois published 1948, (visit link) we are told:

On November 20, 1855 Joseph Derivera sold one fourth acre of land to the school board for school purposes only, and a school was built.

In April 1863 the board voted to sell the old schoolhouse to the highest bidder, and levy a tax to build a new school.
