COOPERSVILLE - St. Michaels in Coopersville received approval to stay open if the school meets a number of benchmarks set by the Diocese of Grand Rapids.
The Diocese had considered shutting down the catholic school due to low enrollment. A group of parents held a friendly protest last October to resist a possible closing this spring.
Stanko stated the school has to hire a full time principal, create a workable budget and tuition structure.
Parents at the school tell Fox 17 they held a celebration Thursday morning at the school. They also say, they have a lot of hard work ahead.
