Michigan district begins overhaul of high school

Renovations will modernize Kelloggsville High School, which was built in the 1920s.

The Kelloggsville (Mich.) district has begun work on a major overhaul of its high school.

WKTV reports that the improvements to Kelloggsville High School in Wyoming, Mich., will modernize the facility, portions of which were built in the 1920s. Since then, the school has received several additions.

Creation of a new entrance to the high school will bolster security in the building because it will separate the school’s gymnasium, media center and the public areas from the rest of the school.

The school also will have a new competition gym able to accommodate varsity games (games now are played at the middle school), an indoor track facility, and a modern media center. The auditorium will receive theater-style seating for 480.

The campus also will benefit from technology upgrades, installation of security cameras, an access control system, and a new fire alarm system.

The district expects the project will be completed in 2017.

Funding for the renovations come from a $33.9 million bond issue that voters approved in February 2015.
