Abilene's parks and recreation board made a motion to approve a land swap with Abilene ISD on Tuesday.
According to a city spokesperson, Bowie Elementary on South 20th Street sits on three plots of land, two belong to the city and are part of a park area.
The school district wants to put a fence around the school. The fence would be on existing city property.
AISD is offering the city five acres of land it owns at Fannin Elementary as a trade, south of Ambler Avenue.
The board made a motion to approve the matter on Tuesday morning.
Next will come public notification, then the matter will go to the Abilene City Council for a vote.
