BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) -

A building in Brookland will soon become the home of the Brookland School District's Administrative Offices while the district will have new classrooms. 

The Brookland School Board recently voted to buy the old Southern Bank building on Holman Street for $90,000. The building will be used for four offices. Right now, the offices are taking up classroom space and McDaniel said the change will help the district in many ways. 

"We have been in situations before where we have had to double up and have like a floating teacher and they have had to go to whatever teacher during her planning period and they would have class in there," McDaniel said. "It gives a teacher a permanent classroom." 

The building has been appraised for $330,000 and school officials plan to move into the building by the start of the 2018-19 school year.
