Warren Consolidated School District is a public school district serving the cities of Warren, Sterling Heights and Troy, Michigan. It operates 25 schools including two specialized partial-day high schools that draw from the other schools within the district. Warren Consolidated has about 16,000 students and a student/teacher ratio of 20:1.[1] The district was led by Superintendent James Clor from 1999 until November 2007. Dr. Robert Livernois took over as superintendent in April 2008 after leaving his former district and district neighbor, Warren Woods School District.[2]

History[edit]

Warren Consolidated was formed in 1941 largely forming around Warren High School.

Special programs[edit]

Warren Con. operates a Performing Arts Center at Sterling Heights High School that draws students from all schools in the district.[3]

The school district also had the Pre Primary Impaired (PPI) special education preschool program, which more recently had been renamed the Early Educational Child Development (EECD) program, but has since been abolished altogether and supplanted by a Special Education Kindergarten program named "Special K" starting in the 2012-2013 school year.

The school district also operates the Career Preparation Center and the Macomb Mathematics Science Technology Center, both of which draw students from other districts.

Cousino High School also houses WPHS and WCSD-TV, the district's student-run radio and television stations.
