ABSD Board of Education Approves No Tax-Rate Increase Bond Proposal for Nov. 8th Ballot

A new day in the Bay - Vote November 8thThe Anchor Bay School District Board of Education has approved placing a $169 million no tax rate increase bond proposal on the November 8 ballot.

The multi-phase bond proposal will take approximately 10  years to complete and focuses on five key principles:

  1. Enhancing educational programming Throughout the K-12 educational program, the school district will place a stronger focus on Career Preparation and STEM programming by developing meaningful connections between classroom experiences for students and their future academic and career goals;
  2. Improving safety and security measures by enhancing building security and video surveillance at all facilities, installing emergency alert systems, adding classroom security door hardware, and strengthening building entrance security;
  3. Addressing aging infrastructures in buildings by updating mechanical systems, temperature controls, roofing, and paving;
  4. Correcting geographical concerns by reducing student transportation costs and reducing the time students spend on buses every day; and,
  5. Increasing building efficiency by reducing operational costs by combining and reducing the number of operational buildings.
