FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The Fargo School Board has slashed the asking price for a century-old school that's been put up for sale.
The Woodrow Wilson High School building built in 1917 was put on the market for $1.45 million, but school Business Manager Broc Lietz (leetz) says potential buyers balked at the price. The Forum newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/AeKNRh) that an unnamed prospective buyer offered much less, and the board countered with a $1.1 million offer. The buyer apparently has lost interest.
The school board has voted to extend its contract with a selling agent through Aug. 1.
Woodrow Wilson houses the district's alternative high school and other programs that soon will move to a new building that received $4.5 million in upgrades.
