Board seeks public ideas on possible 2016 bond proposal

FRIDAY, Sept. 25 — The Lansing School District will hold five public meetings starting Monday on a possible bond millage proposal to improve school buildings.

“We really hope citizens, parents, students and staff will consider attending one of the upcoming bond input sessions in the next few weeks because feedback is very important in this critical decision making process,” said Lansing School District Superintendent Yvonne Caamal Canul.

“The Lansing School District knows we need to make a significant investment in our school facilities within the next few years to be competitive in the education marketplace,” she added. “Our ultimate goal is to help students become academically successful, learn and grow. Stakeholder opinions and constructive citizen engagement will really help shape the bond proposal and ultimately the future of Lansing School District.”

The school board is looking at putting the bond millage proposal before voters next year.
