Election will affect every Warren Woods Student
Warren Woods Public Schools planning November 7 bond election
The Warren Woods Public Schools Board of Education has voted unanimously to place a comprehensive, $20 million bond proposal on the November 7 ballot.
School Superintendent Stacey Denewith said that the bond proposal will enable the school district to implement its long-range facilities plan while assuring that Warren Woods schools and school facilities are safe, secure, and up-to-date. “The bond proposal also calls for continuing upgrades in technology and the school district’s technology infrastructure, and the replacement of buses when they wear out,” said Denewith. “All of the proposed projects have been approved by the Michigan Department of Treasury,” she added.
The bond proposal is designed to improve current facilities while positioning the school district for the future, both educationally and financially. The bond projects fall into five basic categories:
- Enhancing school security and student safety
- Remodeling and upgrading schools and school facilities with emphasis on improving energy efficiency
- Upgrading and replacing technology and technology infrastructure
- Improving school sites, including playgrounds, parking lots, traffic flow, and athletic facilities
- Replacing school buses as they reach the end of their useful life
If approved by voters, the bond proposal will affect every Warren Woods Public Schools student, school, and school facility.
School Board President Jere Green said that the bond proposal is designed to maintain and enhance Warren Woods’s reputation for quality educational programming. “Approval of this bond proposal will help us achieve our goal that our schools and school facilities are up-to-date and in good repair for this generation and the next. We also believe voter approval of the bond proposal will help maintain and enhance property values in the school district,” he said.
Green said that voter approval of the bond proposal would mean an estimated 2.2 mill increase in property taxes. “A person living in a $100,000 home would pay $110 more per year or 30¢ per day.” Green noted that most Warren Woods residents would pay less than 30¢ per day, and that many senior citizens would pay nothing additional if the bond proposal is approved.
The school district will be working to help residents understand the rationale for the bond projects and the anticipated benefits to students and other members of the community. Superintendent Denewith said, “We will be making presentations and distributing information about the election to explain how the bond proposal will positively affect our schools, individual homeowners, and our community. Information will also be posted in the lobby of every school.”
Denewith invited residents who have questions or need additional information about the bond proposal to click on School Election Information on the school district’s website (www.warrenwoods.misd.net). There is where voters will find a list of projects scheduled at each school and a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Residents who have questions are also invited to call any Warren Woods principal, or to contact Superintendent Denewith directly by phone (586/439-4417) or email (email@example.com).
