TULSA, Oklahoma -- There are new developments as Tulsa Public Schools hangs a for sale sign in front of nine schools.

The Tulsa School Board declared Addams, Barnard Cherokee, Chouteau, Roosevelt, and Sandburg elementary schools, as well as, Wilson Middle School, and the Pershing and Samuel Morse sites, all surplus.

It's the first step toward selling those schools.  Most of them were closed as part of the district's consolidation effort.

Board members said Monday night they're just testing the waters. They will now get the properties appraised and then open them for bids.

But administrators say they will be choosy, looking for the best price and the best fit and they say some properties may not sell at all.
