The Northwest School Board Monday approved entering a resolution to purchase more than 150 acres of land in Tarrant County for a future school site.

According to a district release, there is no timeline for construction, but the area is labeled “the fastest-growing area of Northwest ISD” and the future campuses are expected to provide relief for other campuses.

School board members also heard a demographic report, which said there are 30,211 future home sites in the district, the largest of any area school district.

The district saw 480 new home starts in the year’s first quarter, its most in that quarter since 2006.

In other business, the board:

  • heard a recommendation to raise district employee wages 2 percent at the midpoint. A resolution issuing the raises will be voted on at the May 22 meeting.
  • recognized outgoing trustee Devonna Holland. Holland has been a school board member since 2008 but chose not to seek re-election this year.
  • authorized final issuance of the district’s 2008 and 2012 bonds.
