The Nettleton Magnet Elementary School in Duluth may have closed last year, but the school district’s efforts to sell the property will have to wait a little longer.

School officials say real estate company Sherman Associates is interested in turning the Central Hillside property on the 100 block of East 6th Street into affordable housing.

On Monday afternoon, however, the Duluth School Board passed a resolution granting the developer more time to put together financing.

According to board members, that may take until December.
