Northwest Suburban High School District 214 is purchasing a vacant 1.2-acre property next to its headquarters in Arlington Heights for use as a practice field.

The school board recently agreed to pay $400,000 for the land at 2025 S. Goebbert Road, which is next to District 214 parking lots and behind Lutheran Church of the Cross.

The practice field has the potential to be used by students in district high schools, specialized learning programs and community education programs, said spokeswoman Jennifer Delgado.

Officials also plan to see if Elite Soccer and Robert Morris University would be interested in using the space, she said.
