The Kansas State Department of Education plans to move to a larger state-owned office building in Topeka in 2014.

Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker said the state decided to move to a state building rather than lease privately owned office space. The department will move into the Landon State Office Building, just east of the Statehouse.

The department currently pays about $640,000 a year to lease the Scott Building in downtown Topeka, where it has been since at least the 1960s. The lease was set to expire at the end of this year.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the department has outgrown the current building.
