Budget
HOUGHTON LAKE COMMUNITY SCHOOLS

Dear Houghton Lake Community,

As Houghton Lake Community Schools continues to look to the future of educating the children of our community, it is important to share current information with you regarding operations, educational programming and facilities. In order to plan accordingly and be good stewards of these public facilities, we have embarked on a facilities assessment process. In this process, all buildings and sites are being evaluated, providing both a snapshot of the district’s current facility needs and a look forward to the district’s anticipated needs.

Facilities and Educational Programming

We operate one elementary school, one middle school, one high school and one community education building. On the main campus the high school is the district’s most modern facility, having been built in 1978. Collins Elementary and the Middle School buildings were originally constructed over 60 years ago. The State of Michigan defines the useful life of a school building at 40 years. Our school building original construction dates are as follows:

COLLINS ELEMENTARY, built in 1955

HOUGHTON LAKE MIDDLE SCHOOL, built in 1950

HOUGHTON LAKE HIGH SCHOOL, built in 1978

COMMUNITY EDUCATION, built in 1989

Teaching and learning look much different today than when our buildings were constructed and renovated. Diverse student instructional needs have expanded and can be better supported with physical and academic environments that inspire 21st century student learning.

The facilities assessment process includes a community survey in order to engage with our parents and community members to get your feedback regarding current facilities, operations and programming.

Your input is valued and very important to this process. We hope you will take a few moments of your time to complete this survey.

THE COMMUNITY SURVEY IS AVAILABLE ON-LINE AT: www.surveymonkey.com/r/HLCS_Survey

Paper copies of the survey are also available at all district facilities.

Thank you in advance for your time and responses that will help us plan for the future of Houghton Lake Community Schools. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions.

 

Sincerely,
Susan K. Tyer
