PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE ……… TOMORROW, TUESDAY, MAY 3!!!!
We are so fortunate to be in a school community which is growing. Over the past 5 years, Hudsonville Public Schools has grown by 604 students. This trend is not new to Hudsonville as our enrollment has almost tripled over the last 25 years. In an effort to address the need for additional classroom space, our Board of Education unanimously approved a resolution to go before voters with a bond request. The proposal to be voted on May 3 calls for:
•New 9+ building on the existing high school site
•New South Elementary located on Greenly Street
•New competition pool and fine arts auditorium
•New transportation facility
•Reconfiguring the Freshman Campus to an Early Childhood Center
•Technology upgrades to all school buildings
•Athletic upgrades at Baldwin, Riley, and High School
Since the district is part of the School Bond Revolving Fund (SBRF), which the state makes available to rapidly growing districts, we will be able to build the facilities and improvements WITHOUT a millage increase. Currently, the districts levies 7.0 mills for debt retirement and the rate will remain at 7.0 mills. The total cost of the proposal will be $82,000,000.00.
