County School Board's new home almost ready

Posted: Updated:

    Tuscaloosa county's school board is 'moving on up'.

     In just a few weeks, Central Office staff will move into the old Federal Building downtown.

     Tuesday, ABC 33/40 got an exclusive sneak-peak inside.   Workers are converting the once highly-secured court building into a public facility.

     The court room itself has been re-purposed as the school board's new meeting room.   The old federal judge's office will become the superintendents office.

     Overall , it will bring the school system's operations under one roof.  "Right now, we have some of our departments in Northport and different places.  We're going to be able to consolidate those departments in one building as well as give enough space for those departments as well.  that's going to be the biggest advantage for us," says school board member Mark Nelson.

     Workers will official begin moving in after Memorial Day, May 27th.
