Trustees sell campus to St. Thomas High School for $60 million
The Houston Independent School District Board of Education on Thursday authorized the sale of the campus housing the district’s High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice.
Trustees voted unanimously to accept a $60 million bid made by St. Thomas High School.
The bid from St. Thomas was one of two the district received on Nov. 1. The other bid was from E.L.K. Mountain Limited for $49,272,914.
During the 2012 school bond campaign, HISD promised to build a new High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice using land sale proceeds and/or any surplus bond dollars.
The existing campus is located at 4701 Dickson. The location of the new campus has yet to be determined.
