5 Midland Elementary Schools Ready To Close 6-09-2010

As students prepare to say goodbye to each other during the final day of classes in Midland, school officials and the community are saying goodbye to five of the district’s elementary buildings.
The Midland Public Schools system will officially close Chippewassee, Cook, Longview, Mills and Parkdale once the final bell rings Wednesday afternoon.
School officials said budget constraints and declining enrollment led to the closures.
More than 1,000 students currently attend classes at the schools. Those students will transfer to the district’s remaining seven elementaries next school year.
The district is expected to save nearly $400,000 per school -- not including the additional savings from cuts in teaching staff eliminated in the closures.
