May 2020 Bond

Community Bond Proposal

NVPS has an opportunity to pass a no mill increase bond in May of 2020. This will allow us to address these urgent needs through bond dollars, protecting our general fund for important instructional and program needs. NVPS is committed to supporting the Whole Child, one who is challenged, healthy, engaged, supported and safe. Improvement to our facilities and equipment will focus on these goals.

Facilities Assessment

NVPS hired Rockford Construction to perform facilities assessments of all buildings. Their findings included:

• All schools were built between the late 1950s and early 1970s.
• Northview High School was last renovated in 2014.
• Elementary and middle schools were last renovated in 1998 (21 years ago).
• Although the facilities are well maintained, many systems and materials are at or near the end of their useful life.
• Elementary and middle schools share common challenges, including old and inefficient boilers and HVAC equipment, lack of adequate security at entrances, parking and drop-off challenges, single pane windows and deteriorating classrooms and restrooms. In addition, our elementary schools all have one multi-purpose space that functions for lunch service, gym use and multi-purpose events, making scheduling difficult.
• To bring our facilities up-to-date and add a multi-purpose space at each elementary, the estimated cost is roughly $25 million.
