WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) - Wyoming Public Schools will shuffle building use in the fall.
In May, voters shot down a bond proposal that would have added classrooms the district says are needed. Because the bond failed, the district will make changes to better utilize their space, according to Superintendent Tom Reeder.
The Wyoming school board decided Monday to close West Elementary, located at the corner of 36th Street and Byron Center Avenue. The students will move to the former Newhall Middle School Building located about three blocks south on 38th Street.
The West Elementary building will become home to the Adult Education Program, along with the district Kick-in and Rebound programs.
Huntington Woods Early Childhood Center will also close. The Great Start Readiness Program will move to the former Rogers Lane Elementary, which already runs Head Start Program. The district has not yet decided what to do with the Huntington Woods property.
East Childcare will also be moving, but no location has yet been determined.
Wyoming intends to put the same $53 million bond on the ballot again in August.
