Lansing Catholic schools consolidating

East Lansing, MI – East Lansing, MI (WKAR) - The Catholic Diocese of Lansing has announced a plan to consolidate its three elementary schools into two. A common middle school will also be created.

The K-through-5 schools will be at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish and at St. Therese Parish. Resurrection Parish will be the site of the middle school.

The consolidation will take effect with the 2010-2011 academic year.

Bishop Earl Boyea says the move reflects the changing demographics and current realities of the city's Catholic school system.
