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. If you have questions please visit our website, or call our superintendent, Nick Ceglarek, 616-669-1740 ext 1.

Building Plan for Hudsonville

future schoolFrom Mr. Nicholas Ceglarek, Superintendent

Last night, the Board of Education unanimously approved a recommendation on a future facility plan.  The plan calls for one Hudsonville High School with two buildings on the current 32nd Street campus (please see attached press release) .  The project includes:

*new 9 + building (new pool/auditorium) on 32nd/Allen Street
*new South Elementary School (Greenly Street)
*Converting Freshman Campus to Early Childhood Center
*Riley and Baldwin athletic site upgrades
*new transportation facility
*technology upgrades in all school buildings

The next step in the process is convincing Michigan Department of Treasury to support our plan.  If this happens (January), we will be placing the issue on the May 3rd ballot allowing the voters to decide.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all that have contributed to the process; staff, parents, business and community leaders, and students who provided input and guidance in the process that helped shape the recommendation.  Thank you to the Board of Education for having the vision to set the parameters, and the courage to move our district forward in this very important facility decision.
