WALKER, Mich.—Cummings Elementary School is about to be transformed.
Grandville Public Schools is reinvesting in the school, adding secure entrances, innovating the inside, and changing the building’s façade and entry glass. The school’s utilities will also be upgraded. Debra Reese, the district’s assistant superintendent for business services, told the Walker Planning Commission earlier this month that the improvements are needed because the school has experienced more growth than it originally expected, and the building is aging.
Grandville Schools closed Riverbend Elementary School several years ago, consolidating classes at Cummings Elementary.
The district hopes to begin renovations over spring break and finish all work before the start of the next school year.
