Northview Public Schools has consistently studied the current and projected needs of district facilities and sites to determine a long-term master plan. Using this information, together with community focus groups and survey feedback, district leaders and the Board of Education are now asking the community to vote on a school bond proposal on May 5, 2020.

 

If approved by voters, the bond proposal would provide $36.7 million for district-wide improvements that focus on INVESTING, MODERNIZING, and ALIGNING Northview Public Schools.

No Tax Increase*

*based on current interest and 3% taxable value growth we project to generate $36.7 million with a no tax increase.
