Each morning thousands of people in metro Detroit wake up to the friendly smile and informative words of Kim DeGiulio and the morning team on WDIV, channel 4. However, not so long ago, before DeGiulio worked as a news anchor helping morning commuters navigate the busy freeways, she was a student navigating the busy hallways of Dearborn High. DeGiulio, a 2008 graduate, joined Deaborn High staff, Board of Educating trustees, Superintendent Dr. Glenn Malyeko, and others to help cut the ribbon on a new classroom addition to the school.
The additional four classrooms will create much needed space for the 2,000 ninth through twelfth grade students at Dearborn High. The $3.2 million addition, which also included a cafeteria expansion, will be ready for students this month and was financed with revenue from the Wayne County Enhancement millage.
Addressing capacity and infrastructure needs at all 32 Dearborn Public Schools has been a School Board topic of discussion since last school year. The Board told administration to create a plan based off of the recommendations of the Infrastructure Task Force. Information will be provided at each Board meeting on the progress of the plan that will most likely require voter approval of a bond proposal in Nov. 2019.
