Grosse Pte. Schools Prepare Closings

A list of schools that could be closed in the Grosse Pointe School District has been released.

The district selected a blue ribbon committee and explore options. The 58 members will  pass the committee’s recommendations on to the board of education.

Enrollment in Grosse Pointe schools has dropped significantly in the last decade. The district said it’s losing 100 students every year, which produces  a $1 million loss in state aid.

The following schools are up for possible closure:

Barnes Early Childhood Center
Kerby Elementary School
Stevens T. Mason Elementary School
Poupard Elementary School
Robert Trombly Elementary School
Lewis Maire Elementary School
School administration building
