Bond Proposal on November 5, 2019
The district has consistently studied the current and projected needs of school facilities and sites to determine a long-term master plan. Using this information, supplemented with community focus groups and survey feedback from over 1,700 people, district leaders and the Board of Education are now asking the community to vote on a school bond proposal on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.
If approved by voters, NO TAX RATE INCREASE is expected for Hudsonville Public Schools property owners. The tax rate is expected to remain the same but would extend the current rate further into the future. The bond proposal would provide $139,925,000 for district-wide improvements, and focuses on GROWING, INVESTING, and CONNECTING Hudsonville Public Schools.
