Burlington School District Seeks Approval For Real Estate Deal

The Burlington School District is hoping to buy, sell and lease several city properties.

The school board is seeking to buy the old St. Joseph School for $2 million. That’s a Catholic School that has closed.

Burlington Schools says the purchase and renovation of the school would be covered by proceeds from selling a school administration building on Colchester Avenue to the University of Vermont for $2 million and leasing the Taft School in a long-term deal to the university.

The City Council now must approve the deal for it to move forward.
