SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -

A school district has bought two school buildings in a polygamous town on the Utah-Arizona border to accommodate a growing number of students from non-polygamy families.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the Colorado City School District in Arizona will buy the buildings from a Utah-run trust that holds about $100 million in homes and property that belong to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The school district will pay $430,000 for two school buildings and another structure it is already leasing.

Colorado City School District Superintendent Carol Timpson says about 225 students in grades first through third will go to class in the buildings.

Timpson says none of the students are FLDS members.

About half of the students come from Centennial, Arizona.
