The new plan before the school board did not require a formal board vote, but all members appeared to support it, Hall said.
Board members later will vote to approve bids for specific projects at each building. Interlochen PTO auxiliary member Paul Baldwin, whose daughter is a second-grader at the school, worries the school's future isn't secure yet.
“The roof is not on yet," said Baldwin. "The board still has to see it through all the way.”
And the longterm future of Interlochen Elementary -- and other TCAPS schools -- will still be tied to the outcome of a 2015 bond proposal.
"The prospect of closing buildings is very real if the bond doesn't pass in November 2015 and it may involving closing more than one," Hardy said.
