Cadillac Area Public Schools Looks to the Future

There’s always change in our communities here in Northern Michigan, and Cadillac is no exception.

Cadillac Area Public Schools has a meeting coming up next week that’s meant to deal with a couple of empty school buildings, Cooley High School and McKinley Elementary. The Forum is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Oct. 9 at Cooley High.

CAPS Superintendent Jennifer Brown says they are seeking community input on how to repurpose the buildings “so that there’s a value added to the community as we sell those properties.”

This is a collaboration between Cadillac Area Public Schools, the City of Cadillac and The Michigan Economic Development Corporation, which recently awarded CAPS and the City of Cadillac a grant for the redevelopment.

To learn more about the options on the table and why the community is invited to be a part of the forum, watch the video above.
