Deaf students get new school in Flint

Posted: Updated:

The Michigan School for the Deaf has a new home in Flint.

The doors opened this month with loads of new technology and a cafeteria that doubles as an auditorium.

Students who live on campus can get to class without walking outside.

Developer Dave Lurvey tells The Flint Journal it's like a new house.

Developers bought the 80-acre campus from the state in 2010 and agreed to build a cutting-edge school for the deaf.

Separately, Fay Hall will be renovated into a new school for Powers Catholic High School.

All classrooms and even some hallways are set up for flat-screen TVs and so-called smartboards.

The technology will help administrators communicate with students.

Students are from around Michigan and range in age from just a few years to adults.
