CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- New Tech High School is one step closer to opening its doors to students in August 2014.

The Clarksville Community School Board of Trustees unanimously approved the acquisition of the vacant Value City property on Eastern Boulevard.

The Clarksville Redevelopment Commission donated the land to the school board for the project.

The school district purchased a $500,000 innovative curriculum in December, aiming to bring better test scores, get more students into college and prepare them for good jobs right out of high school.

Now, the school board must meet to determine the renovations needed for the building.
