LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The Lawrence school board has formally accepted land that will be the site of a new technical education center for the district's high school students.

The board on Monday voted to accept 11 acres donated by HiPer Real Estate Holdings.

Superintendent Rick Doll says the vote was the culmination of years of work to expand the district's job-training and career preparation efforts.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the $5.7 million project is being funded with money from a $92.5 million bond issue district voters approved in April.

Construction is expected to begin early next year, with the center scheduled to open for the 2015-2016 school year.
