WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Wilmington's newest charter school now has a home. Douglass Academy will soon move into a facility on North Sixth Street.

The building was originally a county elementary school, but has been used more recently for Head Start classrooms.

Organizers of Douglass Academy had hoped to occupy New Hanover County's abandoned Lakeside High School, but couldn't agree on a rental price with the school board.

We're told they will be able to rent the space on Sixth Street for a dollar a year.
