Students return to school around west Michigan


PORTAGE (WKZO) -- Students returned to school all over Michigan on Tuesday, many in districts where a lot of work was done over the summer. Those at Kalamazoo's Woodward School of Technology and Research and at Washington Writers Academy came to classes with refurbished buildings, and Schoolcraft students this year are being given free iPads, thanks to a state program. There have also been some changes in Portage. Superintendent Mark Bielang says that the old administration building has been demolished, and some adjustments have been made to Angling Road Elementary School to improve safety.

"There's a new parking lot and bus dropoff zone at Angling Road," Bieland told WKZO. "We've increased some safety features there by further separating the bus traffic from the parental traffic, and maintaining that similar dropoff zone that we had, separating the parking lot from the school."

Anyone interested in getting a memento from the demolition of the administration building can get a brick that used to be part of it. They're available on a first come, first serve basis. To find out more, go to the new administration building at 8107 Mustang Drive.
