The Vidor Independent School District has purchased the former Capital One Bank building to be used as the school district’s administration building for a purchase price of $950,000. According to Vidor I.S.D. Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Jay Killgo, the Vidor I.S.D. School Board of Trustees, during a special meeting on June 9, 2020 gave the Superintendent authority to close on the property and to sign the legal documents required for the purchase of the former bank building.

“We feel that this is an extremely reasonable price for this building,” said Dr. Killgo. “Our plan is to move the Vidor I.S.D. Annex, the Technology Department and the Administration all into that location, and then put those three buildings that they are currently occupying up for sale.”
