With the closing of Maple and Twin Beach elementary schools looming at the end of the current school year, the time has come for the Walled Lake Consolidated School District to begin to fit together the pieces for redistricting.
“It’s like a puzzle,” said Director of Community Relations and Marketing Judy Evola. “We have to look at various pieces and look how they best fit together to accommodate all the necessary needs.”
As part of the process, the district is holding three community forums at the three high schools.
The first was held last night, Tuesday, Nov. 1 at Walled Lake Central High School, and two more community forums will be held over the next month.
One will be held Monday, Nov. 14, in the media center at Walled Lake Northern High School from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The other will be held Monday, Dec. 5, in the media center at Walled Lake Western from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, the advisory committee will be taking this public input into account as members form their recommendations for the new school attendance boundaries relative to pre-kindergarten through fifth-grade school buildings. They’re expected to present their recommendations to the Board of Education by February.
Throughout this process, community input will be invaluable, and as such the district is looking for feedback. For more information, visit www.wlcsd.org or email email@example.com.
