Church eyes shuttered elementary school

Church eyes shuttered elementary school

WRIGHT TOWNSHIP, Mich.—The Superintendent of Kenowa Hills Public Schools says new plans may be forming for another shuttered elementary school.

Superintendent Gerald Hopkins says a church is considering buying Marne Elementary to keep it in the community.  Hopkins says the church has been eyeing the property for about six to eight months now.

Marne and Fairview elementary schools closed in 2010 because of declining enrollment. In August 2012, Wright Township officials offered to buy Marne Elementary for $1, but the school board rejected the deal.

The Salvation Army has an agreement with Kenowa Hills to possibly purchase Fairview Elementary for $500,000 and transform it into a service center.
