Public meeting in place about the future of St. Johns Schools

ST. JOHNS, MI. (WLNS) – In St. Johns enrollment numbers are going down and officials want to start saving money.

Now the community is asked to gather for another meeting on Tuesday to discuss the future of an elementary school.

Like many districts in the state, St. Johns is experiencing declining student bodies, therefore the facilities committee is asking for recommendations on cutting costs.

The committee will tell the public about its plan to turn Gateway North Elementary into a lower elementary school, teaching kindergarten through 2nd grade.

Oakview Elementary would teach 3rd through 5th grade.

The committee has talked about closing East Olive Elementary and selling off the Wilson Center.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
