(Victorville)- The Victor Elementary School District (VESD) will be moving into a new district office of 30,000 square feet on over 2 acres. The acquisition closed escrow on April 12, 2012.
The purchase price of $2,150,000 allowed Victor Elementary School District to purchase the property for about 50% less of what new construction would have cost. “They will be able to redirect available limited resources to new school expansions and improvements with this very cost effective acquisition,” explained President/Broker Donald P. Brown of Lee & Associates who helped broker the deal.
The two-story office building on 2nd Avenue will house the administration offices for the district which has outgrown its current location on Eighth Street in Victorville. VESD is in the redesign phase with hopes of being in the construction phase by November 2012. The funding is stemmed from redevelopment funds from VESD. The new district office is adjacent to Desert Valley Hospital near the geographic center of the Victor Valley, providing centralized and easy access for parents, faculty, classified staff and interested citizens.
VESD was established in 1896 and began with a one-room schoolhouse and twenty students. Today there are over 10,000 students attending 18 school sites including eight parent choice schools and two charter schools.
