1. KISD moves to buy Cinco Ranch campus from U of H
KISD announced its intention to buy the University of Houston’s 10-acre campus in Cinco Ranch at 4242 S. Mason Road, Katy, for no more than $7.236 million.

Superintendent Lance Hindt has yet to negotiate a final price for the site, which has been housing Betty Sue Creech Elementary School since Sept. 11.

Creech Elementary flooded during Tropical Storm Harvey and is undergoing renovations. Students and staff are expected to move back into their home campus by the end of the school year.

Hindt and board President Ashley Vann said they did not know how the UH site would be used, but the purchase would be made using general operating funds.
