Ypsilanti and Willow Run school boards approved placing the question of merging the districts on the Nov. 6 general election ballot at a joint meeting on Aug. 8.
The districts recently launched a mass-marketing campaign to ensure voters understand the impact of consolidation.
Leaders and community members met Oct. 10 at the Christ Temple Baptist Church to discuss the possible merger.
The other two meetings will be held on the following dates:
- 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at Community Church of God, 565 Jefferson St., Ypsilanti Township
- 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the Ypsilanti District Library, 5577 Whittaker Road, Ypsilanti Township
The Minister’s Alliance of Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor & Vicinity pledged its support of the unification effort via letter in July. The districts scheduled pulpit visits between October and November. One is planned for 11:15 a.m., Oct. 14 at the Messias Temple at 200 Harriet St.
