On Monday, May 16th, a report was presented to the Durham District School Board (DDSB) Board of Trustees to publicly announce the recirculation for sale of two properties – former Cartwright High School site at 14220 Old Scugog Road in Blackstock and former HW Knight Public School site at 1310 12th Line in Cannington, both of which have previously been declared surplus to the needs of the Board.

Following the government-mandated process to recirculate and sell surplus properties, a 180-day period commences during which the DDSB must offer the properties for sale at Fair Market Value to the following organizations: French Public, English Catholic and French Catholic school boards; Education Community Partnership Program Section 23 Agencies; Consolidated Municipal Service Managers; local English and French language colleges and universities; Children’s Mental Health Lead Agency; Local Health Integration Networks; Board of Health, Province of Ontario, local municipalities (in this case the Townships of Scugog and Brock); the local upper-tier municipality (in this case the Region of Durham) and Indigenous organizations.

The 180-day period began on May 3rd, 2022, and the listed organizations received letters in accordance with the process of selling the properties.

If there is no interest from the identified organizations, the properties will be offered for sale in the open market at Fair Market Value.
