The girls at the Young Women's Leadership Academy may be moving to new digs on Eighth Street in Fort Worth.
The Fort Worth school board in January agreed to purchase the Tarrant County Education Center building at 401 E. 8th St.
The deal still must still be considered by the Tarrant County Commissioner's Court, which is expected to take up the matter at a meeting scheduled for Feb. 26, a school district spokeswoman said. If both parties approve, officials hope to be done with renovations and ready to move into the new building in time for the fall 2013 semester.
The academy has outgrown its current space, Fort Worth schools spokesman Clint Bond said.
The school opened in August 2010 in a converted building on West Magnolia Avenue that served as the school district's adult education center. Officials are adding one grade per year. This year, there are students in grades seven through 10.
