YPSILANTI - The Ypsilanti Board of Education this week approved the sale of the 56-year-old Woodruff Elementary School to the Word of God, Inc., of Ann Arbor for $150,000.
The Word of God, an ecumenical Christian community, plans to use the building for
for grades a school for grades kindergarten through 12th grade. James L. Pitcher, school board treasurer and district business manager, said the group will move into the structure within the next 60 days.
The board decided to close the school, located at 211 E. Michigan Ave., last August because of declining enrollment. The appraised value of the school is $180,000. Although other offers to buy the school were made, school officials decided to accept the Word of God's proposal because it was compatible with the board's plans to continue using the structure as a school.
