2023 Bond Information


School bond proposalOne very important aspect of running a school district is planning for the continued maintenance and development of our district.  In May 2023, Center Line Public Schools will have two ballot requests, asking our community to 1) maintain the current school operating millage, and 2) approve a zero-mill increase bond. 

Neither of these requests will increase the tax rate.  They are designed to maintain tax rates at the current level.  Funds from the operating millage are used to pay for everyday expenses of operating schools—staffing (teachers, custodians, classroom aides, bus drivers, etc.), heat, buses, electricity, after-school activities, athletics, and much more.  Funds from the zero-mill increase bond request would be used to continue the improvements to many of our schools and throughout our district. 

In the coming weeks, additional information regarding the two proposals will be placed here on our website.  Below are dates for Community Information Nights where Superintendent Haynes will present information specific to the two ballot proposals and answer questions.  

  • Thursday, February 9th (7:00pm) - CLHS Media Center
  • Wednesday, February 15th (6:00pm) - CLHS Media Center
  • Wednesday, March 1st (9:30am) - CLHS Auditorium
  • Thursday, March 2nd (6:00pm) - Roose Cafeteria (with Bengali interpreter)

 
We look forward to engaging with our community and discussing the future of our district.

Operating Millage
This is a renewal of the current millage and a restoration of a small amount of the previously authorized millage which was rolled back under the Headlee Amendments to the Michigan Constitution which will allow the School District to continue to receive revenues at the full per pupil foundation allowance permitted by state law.
