Latest Update on March 2020 Bond: Board Approves Application for Preliminary Qualification of Bonds
Dear Davison Families:
I wanted to share with you the latest update concerning our DCS Bond 2020 proposal. At last night’s Board of Education meeting, the board voted to approve the Application for Preliminary Qualification for the March 10, 2020, bond. This means that the application is now on its way to the Michigan Department of State Treasury for approval.
While the Application is still considered preliminary at this time, we felt it was important to share the document with our families not only to be transparent in our actions but to provide information so everyone in the DCS family and community is aware of what is in our bond application. The file is attached below.
Inside the application you will find that the district is seeking approval to place a $71,390,000 bond on the March 10, 2020, ballot for the purpose of “erecting, furnishing, and equipping additions to and remodeling, furnishing and refurnishing, and equipping and re-equipping school buildings; erecting a new bus storage building; acquiring and installing instructional technology in school buildings; erecting, equipping, preparing, developing, and improving playgrounds, athletic fields and facilities, and sites?”
The application goes into further detail in regard to each building and what work would be included in the bond. You will find that there are upgrades to security and technology at every school building and renovations to Davison High School including the addition of a Performing Arts Center. All of these items were the top choices as selected by those who took our surveys last spring and attended our Community Forums this past fall.
We hope to have final approval from Treasury within the next 30 days. We will continue to update you as things progress.
