District shares information about referendum

Posted February 5, 2018

The Plymouth School District is sharing information with the community about its upcoming referendum regarding upgrades to school facilities.

The referendum, which will be on the April 3 ballot, asks voters if they support borrowing up to $31.9 million to improve safety/security; expand learning opportunities for high school students; and provide better access to education, wellness and recreation for students and the community.

In putting together the referendum proposal, the district conducted a thoughtful and thorough evaluation of its existing facilities and sought community feedback through focus groups and a districtwide survey.

The Board of Education believes this is a good time to consider a referendum, given the district’s tradition of fiscal responsibility, its low mill rate compared to other districts, and historically low interest rates.

District officials are available to visit community groups to share information and answer questions regarding the referendum; call the district office at 892-2661 to schedule a talk.

In addition, the district has scheduled two Open Houses to provide information about the referendum:

  • 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 13 at Fairview
  • 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 15 at Parkview
