The Clawson Public Schools Board of Education is asking voters to consider a bond issue again on August 8, 2023. Unprecedented inflation due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and other market conditions led to cost increases that were beyond typical economic projections. These cost escalations resulted in a budget shortfall which requires the 2021 Bond to be completed with a strategically reduced scope. This reduced scope eliminates some planned renovations including such items as new flooring, façade repairs, a middle school gym refresh and new paint at the high school.
With these challenges also come opportunities to ensure that Clawson Public Schools continues to be a vital district preparing learners to succeed today and every day:
We have an opportunity to ask voters to consider a bond in 2023 with no change to the tax rate which will enable the district to complete the renovations along with additional district-wide improvements.
Zero mill increase: Ability to generate $25.5 Million for facilities investments with no change to the tax rate.
At the May 1, 2023 Board of Education meeting, the Board unanimously voted to place a bond proposal on the ballot for an August 8, 2023 election. If passed, a bond could generate approximately $25.5 million without an increase in taxes. Over the next few months the district will be providing information related to the bond and how it will impact the educational experience for our students. We will continue to add information to this site as the program develops.
