Why is it important to attract and retain students in the district?
Public schools in Michigan receive state funding on a per-pupil basis, making attracting and retaining students central to our operating budget. Research consistently demonstrates that the quality of programs and facilities plays a role in both of these areas. If approved by the voters, the bond program would upgrade facilities to support our adopted updated teaching methods, improve operational efficiencies in our facilities, provide learning environments attuned to our curriculum, and protect the community’s past investment in our school buildings. Parents have choices where their children will receive an education. It is the intent of the District and Board of Education to maintain its reputation for providing quality programs and facilities in order to attract and retain students.
