Wrestling with budget cuts, the Holt School Board is looking at turning the ninth grade campus into a middle college. Students of senior status would be able to take college credits as electives. The board is collaborating with Lansing Community College and Olivet College. “Olivet College or LCC will be providing their courses here,” said Dean Manikas, executive director of curriculum and staff development. “Maybe some of their faculty will be here, too.”
