A Southlake church that meets in the former site of Carroll Intermediate School has submitted bids to buy the property.
Carroll schools trustees last year declared the campus surplus property to allow it to be sold.
Southlake Baptist Church was the only bidder and submitted two separate bids options, said Julie Thannum, school district spokeswoman. The bids were opened on Tuesday. The school board can decide whether to accept or reject the offers.
The congregation has a two-year lease with the district for space at the intermediate school.
If the building is sold, those offices will move to a new administrative center at the vacant Carroll Middle School building on Dove Road, which is slated for renovation. Students and teachers moved to a new, solar-powered replacement campus that opened in August 2011.
The Carroll Intermediate campus, at Carroll Avenue and Highland Street in Southlake, closed after the 2002-2003 school year. The site includes the original area schoolhouse building, constructed in 1919. It is the oldest public building in Southlake. Read more about the 1919 school from the Southlake Historical Society.
