Genesee ISD will host a groundbreaking ceremony for the renovation and expansion of the Early Childhood Programs & Services (ECPS) building located at 5089 Pilgrim Road, Flint. ECPS supports all local school districts in Genesee County by providing special education programs and services to children from 3-8 years of age.   

WHAT: Groundbreaking Ceremony – Renovation & Expansion of ECPS 
WHEN: Monday, June 17, 2024 | 10:00 a.m.
WHERE: ECPS – 5089 Pilgrim Road, Flint, MI 48507

This expansion project will include twelve new classrooms, therapy rooms, an additional parking area, and bus and parent drop off loops with overhead canopies protecting the students from the weather. Once the addition is complete, the project will also involve renovating the existing building by transitioning current office spaces into more classrooms. A new library, music room and nursing office will also be added. 

The outdoor playground space will receive new equipment, fencing, surfacing and expanded play areas for students of all ages. The exterior of the current building will also receive a facelift of new metal panels, masonry work, paint, lighting and landscaping.

"We are excited to begin a project that has been in the planning phase for over a year. The expansion and renovation of our Early Childhood Programs and Services building will provide much needed additional space to serve students with disabilities 3 - 8 years of age,” stated Tricia Hill, Deputy Superintendent of Genesee ISD. “The additional space and the renovation to the existing building is intentionally designed to meet the unique needs of our youngest learners.” 

Please join us as we celebrate with a groundbreaking ceremony for this exciting new, innovative space for the students.
