Some Basic Facts
The primary purpose of the November 7th bond proposal is to build and update school facilities for this generation and the next. Our buildings are over 60 years old; we spend approximately $1 million/year more on maintenance than our neighboring districts. We have over $24 million in critical needs. It’s time we do more than patch/repair.
The goals are to enhance student safety and security, increase efficiency to lower costs, upgrade technology and infrastructure, and purchase buses when they reach the end of their useful lives. This will improve the education of all students and district quality for all residents.
This bond, now approved by voters, will assure our facilities operate efficiently, match current and projected student enrollment, and are on par with neighboring school districts.
The bond projects fall into seven basic categories:
¨ Construction of a new elementary and early childhood school to house current Peck Elementary students and youngsters in the Early Childhood Center (ECC) program, located behind Center Line High School.
¨ Renovations and new construction at the Early Childhood Center (formerly Ladd Elementary). Roose Elementary students will be relocated to this “new Roose” in 2021.
¨ Improvements to Crothers Elementary, including the addition of a new cafeteria and gym (2023).
¨ Renovations at Center Line High School and Wolfe Middle School (including roof repairs, installation of new technology, and upgrades to the CLHS auditorium and pool).
¨ Relocation of administration to Wolfe Middle School and demolition of Follbaum Administration Building.
¨ Roof replacements and other improvements at Peck Elementary. When completed, this school will be used to house the Homeschool Partnership and Academy 21 students beginning in 2023.
¨ Replacement of school buses as they reach the end of their useful lives.
