Detroit school board approves major overhaul to schools

By: | February 13, 2020

Major restructuring plans approved by the Detroit board of education this week will move students to buildings in better physical condition, move programs into different schools and add another examination school.

The board, which approved the restructuring plan Wednesday, hopes the changes will increase the rigor at several of its high schools and boost K-12 enrollment in the state’s largest district.

Changes, which are to take effect in the fall across the Detroit Public Schools Community District, include:

  • Golightly Career Technical Center’s career technical education programming will be reconfigured. Culinary programming will remain at the school, and the district’s food and nutrition programming will be relocated there. Golightly’s printing, graphic and design programming will be expanded into a district graphic, printing and design department and remain at the school.
