On Monday, November 26, 2012, the newly appointed board for the consolidation of Ypsilanti Public Schools and Willow Run Community Schools were sworn in to both the Ypsilanti and Willow Run school boards. All seven individuals sworn in will serve the new consolidated district and will also serve the separate Ypsilanti and Willow Run school systems until July 1, the official birth of the Unified District. Each members term expires December 31, 2014.
Voters have approved merging the Ypsilanti and Willow Run school districts.
The "yes" vote on two ballot proposals — the consolidation question and the corresponding 18-mill non-homestead millage to fund the new district — essentially dissolves the two longstanding public school districts to create a new, unnamed district with a to-be-decided mascot, building plan and leaders.
