Parent Letter Announcing Our Community Forums


Dear Wayne-Westland Community,

For the past two years, Wayne-Westland Community Schools has been working towards a grade-level reconfiguration for our schools. In an effort to make the most of our economic resources, the District is right-sizing so that the investment in student learning remains our priority. Beginning with the 2020-21 school year, Wayne-Westland Community Schools will transition to a K-5, 6-8 and 9-12 grade level configuration.

The District will transition to three middle schools. They will be

  • Adams Middle School
  • Franklin Middle School
  • Stevenson Middle School

Marshall Upper Elementary School will close in June 2020.

These schools will serve students in grades 6-8. This change will affect our current 5-7 grade students and families. This will also affect our current 6-8 grade staff.

We have created a Middle School Transition Committee to prepare and plan effectively, in order to provide a smooth transition for our students, staff and parents. The Middle School Transition Committee is planning four Community Forums to share information and answer questions about the Middle School Transition process including planned events and celebrations, timeline, transportation and revised attendance boundaries. Please note there will be no changes to the high school attendance boundaries.

Join us at one of the upcoming meetings. See the flyer below with the dates and locations of the meetings.
