AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

The Sumter County School Board has approved the purchase of land for its new high school.

Board members say the new high school will go on approximately 440 acres across from South Georgia Technical College on Souther Field Road.

The school system will purchase the land from the Americus-Sumter Payroll Development Authority for $3,850 per acre.

The next step will be for the State Department of Education to approve the transaction, but there is a 120 day waiting period before that will happen.
