Bond Information

The Roseville Community Schools Board of Education has unanimously approved placing a comprehensive $59.4 million bond proposal on the May 8 ballot. Prior to the Board of Education’s vote, the Michigan Department of Treasury reviewed and approved more than 200 projects that are included in the bond proposal.

 

To prepare the bond proposal, the Roseville Community School District conducted a school district assessment, developed a list of priority projects, and reviewed the project list with more than 400 residents and community leaders over a series of seven public meetings. “The public meeting participants expressed enthusiasm and support for the proposed bond,” said Roseville Community Schools Superintendent John Kment. “The bond proposal will affect every Roseville student and every Roseville school facility,” he continued. “The emphasis will be on updating instructional technology and infrastructure, enhancing school security and student safety, replacing band instruments, upgrading athletic fields, playgrounds, and parking lots, and replacing school buses that have reached the end of their useful life.”

 

The list of projects submitted to the Michigan Department of Treasury was quite extensive, according to Kment. “It includes such things as installing surveillance cameras, door replacements, updating locker rooms, replacing furniture, and upgrading emergency lighting. A complete list of projects will be posted on the school district’s website (www.rosevillepride.org) and displayed in each school’s lobby.” Board of Education President Theresa Genest believes the bond is necessary to support Roseville’s educational program and that the Roseville Community School District’s schools and school facilities are up-to-date and in good repair. “I believe this is a win-win proposal for our students and the Roseville community,” she said.

 

If approved by voters, the 2.5 mill bond proposal will cost a person living in a $90,000 home about 31¢ more per day in property taxes. While some people will pay more, most residents of the school district will pay less than 31¢ per day. Genest emphasized that voter approval of the bond proposal would enhance Roseville’s education programs and facilities for today’s generation and future generations. “I also believe a successful bond will have a positive impact on property values in our community,” she said.

 

Superintendent Kment said that the school district will produce informational materials to explain the various components and benefits of the bond proposal. “We want to make sure members of the community understand the proposal and that all of their questions are answered before the May 8th vote,” he said.

The primary purpose of the May 8th bond proposal is to remodel and upgrade Roseville Schools and school facilities. Voter approval of the bond proposal will allow the school district to..
