(LAGRANGE) – There have been a few students leave the Lakeland School Corporation since the announcement of two schools closing.
Monday night the Lakeland Board of Education received an update from Superintendent Eva Merkel on the eight students who have left the corporation. Six were due to their parents moving; one was a foster child and one was going to be home schooled.
Merkel says five students are said to be moving into the high school.
Three town hall meetings will be held this month. These will offer opportunities for the community to hear what the possibilities are and to give input on programs the community might like to see at Lima Brighton and Wolcott Mills Elementary Schools.
Meetings will run from 6 PM until 7 PM. Dates and locations are: April 17th at the Lima-Brighton Elementary School; April 24th at Wolcott Mills Elementary School and April 29th at Lakeland Middle School.
A number of potential partners to offer services or programs at the buildings have already expressed some interest. Trine University, Ivy Tech, Parkview Hospital, Northeastern Center, and Bowen Center are ready to partner in some way. Other conversations are starting, with Goshen College, Cole YMCA, and the LaGrange Community Youth Center to name a few.
