NOVI COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD OF EDUCATION APPROVES RESOLUTION TO PLACE $185 MILLION BOND PROPOSAL ON NOVEMBER BALLOT

By: Dr. Steve Matthews

NOVI, Mich.,  – On June 25, 2019, the Novi Community School District Board of Education voted 7-0 to authorize a November 5, 2019, Capital Projects bond election. The proposed bond would generate $185 million dollars for building and program needs while lowering the millage rate to 6.75 mills from the current 7.0 mills.

The proposed bond would address critical infrastructure needs, enhance programming throughout the district, support ongoing technology needs, enhance Career and Technical Education space including space for Robotics, renovate and expand Meadows 5-6 building, create new space for special education and adult transition students, enhance the high school pool area, and build an activities center.

The proposed bond will impact every building in the district. Improvements to safe and secure entries, adding and improving collaborative learning space, and optimizing the location for special education are among the notable projects.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for our school district to continue optimizing opportunities for our students and our community,” said Board President Bobbie Murphy. “We can reduce our millage rate, generate revenue, and continue to enhance our facilities and programs so that Novi remains a destination for families seeking a high quality educational experience.”

The Capital Bond Projects have been developed by examining building needs using a strategic facilities assessment. In addition, a Facilities and Programming Committee comprised of school staff, parents, and community members met four times over the course of two months for all stakeholder to learn about the proposed projects and provide input. As part of this process two community forums were held. The committee presented a recommendation to the Board of Education on June 6th. The Board closely examined the recommendation over the course of two meetings.

“The district has been good stewards of the 2014 bond, which added a new Early Childhood Center, classrooms, and a high school fitness center,” said Willy Mena, chair of the Board of Education’s Capital Projects Committee. “This new bond will reduce the tax rate, address critical infrastructure and program needs in areas like robotics, and create new opportunities to work and collaborate with the city of Novi to meet our community needs.”

Under state law, bond proceeds may not be used to pay administrator, teacher, or staff salaries, routine maintenance costs, or other school operating expenses.  The money generated by this bond must be directed toward improving Novi Community School District facilities so that programs can be enhanced.
