Everyone is invited to attend and learn more about the future of OMPS, as well as share thoughts and ideas.

As we reported in January, the OMP Education Foundation and Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) reached an agreement for the sale of OMPS to the Foundation. The agreement includes a sale price of $1.1 million, agreed upon building contents, and a transfer date of July 1, 2018.

The agreement was reached after weeks of negotiations as OMPEF increased its original offer of $750,000 to $1 million. TCAPS countered with a ballpark figure of $1.25-$1.5 million.

The purchase agreement includes TCAPS continuing to provide educational services to OMPS through June 2018. The building will fall under the umbrella of TCAPS during this time. The TCAPS board voted recently to redistrict OMPS effective Fall 2018, at which time OMPS students would have attended the newly remodeled Eastern Elementary School beginning that September.
