May 2016 Bond Election
The Grosse Ile Township Schools Board of Education has voted unanimously to hold a comprehensive bond election on May 3.
The bond election will affect every Grosse Ile student, school, and school facility. If approved by voters, the tax rate will increase by a quarter-mill, making it the same as it was between 2010 and 2015.
The bond proposal will enable the school district to enhance student safety and school security while assuring that Grosse Ile Township Schools are up-to-date and in good repair. We will be able to make significant improvements across the school district at a very reasonable cost. For a person living in a quarter million-dollar house, the cost will be eight cents per day.
The bond proposal is designed to address current building needs while positioning the school district for the future, both educationally and financially. The bond projects fall into four basic categories:
- improving student safety and school security;
- upgrading technology and technology infrastructure;
- replacing boilers, roofs, and other facility components; and,
- improving athletic facilities.
The bond proposal is designed to maintain and enhance Grosse Ile’s reputation for quality educational programming and the school district’s commitment to providing students with a quality learning environment. Approval of this bond proposal will assure that our schools and school facilities are up-to-date and in good repair for this generation and the next.
