COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - The Columbus Municipal School District is looking to sell the shuttered Lee Middle School and the Lowndes County School District is interested in buying the facility.

Jeff Smith, board attorney for county school system, tells The Commercial Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1INcu45) the county district is interested in placing their centralized career-technical center at the Military Road location.

On Monday, the Columbus Board of Trustees voted to begin accepting bids for the school, which opened in 1953 and closed its doors in 2011.

Smith said he had hoped the two districts would be able to come up with an agreement on the property between each other, but that LCSD will likely bid on the 14-acre property.
