The Fargo School Board has voted to take over the lease rights of the Bluestem Center for the Arts. The board will send a letter saying it'll pay off $2.1 million in bonds for the lease rights, but it must wait 60 days to complete the transaction.

If it's completed, Bluestem's lease rights with the city of Moorhead to the amphitheater, main building and land would be transferred to Fargo Schools. Bluestem still owes Fargo Schools an additional $2.7 million. The head of Bluestem's Board of Directors says paying the district back is not impossible, but extremely improbable.
