SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Brigham Young University has been given the go ahead to buy a Provo high school’s property for $25 million.

The Daily Herald in Provo reports (https://bit.ly/1TvjjMQ) that the Provo School District’s education board unanimously approved the sale to the Mormon university Tuesday morning.

The board’s vice president says the offer from the university is incredibly generous.

The sale of Provo High School is expected to close this summer after the completion of such things as a geological study.

The 25 acre school is located close to BYU in Provo. The university says it has no immediate plans for the property.

Students will be moved to the high school’s new location about ten minutes away. Work on the new high school is expected to begin on Wednesday.
