The West Bloomfield School District, Township Board, and the Orchard Lake Village City Council are scheduled to meet on Monday. Here's a brief look at what is on the School Board agenda.
West Bloomfield Schools moving forward with reconfiguration project
The School Board is expected to receive an update on the cost of closing Ealy Elementary School next fall, among other plans to consolidate facilities.
According to a memo from Superintendent Gerald Hill, the district is not currently in a position to move forward with recommended plans to close the ACS building, moving its employees to West Bloomfield High School, as well as Ealy.
In order to keep Ealy's closure on schedule, it's time to move into the bidding process soon, Hill said. However, the district's capital funds project would fall into a $1.9 million deficit if both projects take place this year.
The administrative relocation project received an estimate of $3 million to complete, forcing the district to hold out until the sinking millage proposal hits the polls in May, Hill added.
The grade level reconfiguration project is estimated at $1.3 million.
School officials said in September that closing the ACS building and Ealy together would save $725,000 from annual operating expenses; closing Ealy alone will save $685,200.
