The Walled Lake Consolidated School District is hoping to receive some input from the public in the form of a facility survey.
The Walled Lake Consolidated School District is conducting a facility study to “best ensure that we are utilizing our buildings’ space in the most cost-effective, efficient ways and that our facilities balance with our enrollment and curricular needs” according to Director of Community Relations Judy Evola.
Preliminary data gathered during a facility study of the Walled Lake Consolidated School District’s elementary schools shows that most of the elementary school classrooms are under-capacity.
The short survey includes questions tackling such issues as which district services should be reduced and what criteria should be used to evaluate elementary schools should WLCSD decide to close one of its school in the interest of reducing costs.
The survey is available until April 22 and can be found at www.wlcsd.org.
Plante Moran, the firm conducting the study, reported their preliminary findings of the utilization of the district’s 14 elementary schools and five support buildings to the Board of Education in January.
