LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Little Rock School District Board of Directors voted Monday night to build two new schools.

Pam Smith, a spokesperson for the Little Rock School District, said in a vote of 6 to 1, board members approved building one in West Little Rock and another on the city's south side. The district has not decided on what types of schools will be built. At this point, they've only authorized spending money to buy the land.

Smith said the land in West Little Rock is 43.5 acres and is situated on the north end of Kattilus Road. It will cost $4,200,000. The second location is at the intersection of Rich Smith Lane and Mabelvale Pike. It will cost $1,372,000 and spans 56 acres.

The next step will be a feasibility study.
