The San Antonio Independent School District thinks it might have an answer to what has been a continuing question.
“We’ve been looking over the years for a way we could have a centralized central office… because right now, we have employees at seven different locations” said the District’s Leslie Price, who told KTSA News the answer might lie in selling some of the District’s older properties.
“Once we do that, we’ll actually be able to build on our own property. No cost to taxpayers if we’re able to get this all sold” Price said, adding “The buildings were trying to sell average around fifty years in age. There’s a lot of maintenance needs. This would provide us a lot of cost savings and a lot of efficiencies.”
Those properties will soon be put out for bid. Price said the construction of a new District central headquarters could help SAISD save more than $2 million per year.
