BIG SPRING - The Big Spring School District could be leasing some of their land for oil exploration.

NewsWest 9 spoke to Business Manager, Debbie Green, who says the Board was approached several months ago by a company interested in doing exploration on land in the northwest part of Howard County.

If the school board gives it the green light at their meeting on Thursday, the next step will be a public hearing.

We're told this piece of land is a hot commodity for oil companies.

It was leased out in 1986.
