Here is a link to a School News Network story written by Charles Honey that gives you one more piece of evidence that our public schools work.
Northview High School students in teacher Jeff Vargo’s Woods I course give back to their community.
Our Northview community did their part by allocating tax dollars to renovate our high school school, added four early childhood classrooms, and updated technology by approving a $43 Million Bond proposal in November 2011. They were courageous when they passed the proposal in the worst economic times in Michigan history since the Great Depression.
Today, our community is once again following the courageous lead of our Board of Education as they consider are request to renew the Building and Site Millage.
This is a NO TAX RATE INCREASE – NO NEW FUNDS that is used to maintain and repair our facilities. It prevents the use of our limited classroom and co-curricular budgets.
Now is the time for our Michigan Legislators to be courageous and support and pass the Classrooms and Kids K-12 Budget Proposal that was introduced in February 2014. This would give Northview a “real 3% net-operating revenue increase.”
Without NEW FUNDS and NO TAX INCREASE in the Base Foundation Allowance.
Our community does its part. Will our MI Legislators do their part? Ask them.
