Stakeholders in the Lansing School District are looking over an interesting and potentially important new study. A national real estate firm, Jones Lang Lasalle, has just submitted an analysis of key buildings in the district. It will be used to determine how to right-size and modernize school facilities in Lansing.

The analysis focuses on the viability of three of the oldest buildings in the district: Eastern High School, Sexton High School and Otto Middle School. The report includes recommendations, one of which is to consider building a new high school.

Current State talks with Peter Spadafore, the President of the Lansing School Board, and Jennifer Hill, manager of Jones Lang Lasalle’s public institutions group.
