THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The Lafourche Parish School Board has moved a step closer to purchasing property for a new Chackbay Elementary School.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/Zv2bzX ) Board members voted unanimously Wednesday night to approve buying nearly 19 acres of land on Louisiana Highway 20, just south of the La. 304 intersection.

Officials say the existing school is falling apart.

School district facilities manager Evan Plaisance says the cafeteria is rotting from the inside out.

Thibodaux real estate agent Ben Harang says the board has 150 days to evaluate the property and search for better options.

Appraised at $505,000, Harang says the agreement calls for buying the land for $500,000, saving the remaining $5,000 for subdivision fees.
