It is this piece of property on which the district wants to build its new school since that is an area of town where school officials think their student population is increasing In authorizing attorney Jack Borchers to ‘'exercise the option for the purchase” of this land, school trustees also authorized the board's president and secretary’, Margy Waldrip and Gene Scott, respectively to “execute the documents'' necessary 'to close the transaction ’’ The new school is needed, school officials say, to meet the district current and pretin ted population growth The elementary levels are suffering most from current overcrowding and two schools Ione Star and Seele are already over capacity In addition to discussing acquisition of land for the new school, trustees considered a variety of other topics Tuesday .Among them was the board's approval of eight out-of-district transfers for next year Because of the board's action, the children from three families will be attending NBISD schools They include Glen Green.
