Last night, the Board of Education unanimously approved a recommendation on a future facility plan. The plan calls for one Hudsonville High School with two buildings on the current 32nd Street campus (please see attached press release) . The project includes:
*new 9 + building (new pool/auditorium) on 32nd/Allen Street
*new South Elementary School (Greenly Street)
*Converting Freshman Campus to Early Childhood Center
*Riley and Baldwin athletic site upgrades
*new transportation facility
*technology upgrades in all school buildings
The next step in the process is convincing Michigan Department of Treasury to support our plan. If this happens (January), we will be placing the issue on the May 3rd ballot allowing the voters to decide.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all that have contributed to the process; staff, parents, business and community leaders, and students who provided input and guidance in the process that helped shape the recommendation. Thank you to the Board of Education for having the vision to set the parameters, and the courage to move our district forward in this very important facility decision.
