Sault College considers purchasing public school

July 5, 2012

Sault College president Ron Common says the institution is hoping to buy Prince Charles public school, should it become available, and make it a permanent home for one of its services. "We are lusting after a surplus school," Common says. "We very much need the space and would jump at the opportunity to purchase it." The college has been renting the school and using it to provide daycare services. While the college is interested in the school, action cannot be taken until the site is declared a "surplus school" by the Algoma District School Board. Soo Today
