In addition to the construction of a new facility, the bond would allow the district to add classrooms to the high school, creating a dedicated space for career and technical education as well as a robotics program.
Voters will go to the polls on May 2 to decide the fate of the bond proposal.
Julie Williams is the Superintendent of Lake Fenton Community Schools. She tells Mlive the district sees many opportunities for educational improvements throughout the district.
“We just see it as an opportunity for growth of programs and opportunities,” Williams said. “We’re really excited about it and just hope that our voters see the value and the need in our community.”
Additional School Improvements
Passage of the bond proposal would generate funding for district-wide facility improvements, according to the district's website. However, bond fund proceeds cannot be used for maintenance or salaries for teachers or administrators.
West Shore Elementary and Torrey Hill Elementary would be remodeled with secured entryways, as well as dedicated cafeterias and new gymnasium floors. New bus loops would also be constructed for both buildings.
New baseball fields would also be built at the middle school and the building would undergo a remodeling project to create science classrooms and a dedicated science lab.
