Community Needs

On Monday, August 14, the Howell Public Schools Board of Education voted to place the Our Kids, Our Community, Our Future bond proposal on the November ballot. Residents residing within the district’s boundaries will vote on the proposal, which if approved would invest in all of the district’s buildings while maintaining the district’s current tax rate of 5.5 mills, which is the lowest of any school district in Livingston County.

If approved, the bond proposal would generate $258 million to fund the highest priorities and focuses on five key areas:

  • Safety & security - security cameras, bollards, building air quality, ADA upgrades, window blinds, door hardware, building access controls, life safety systems, and buses.
  • Learning environments - new Northwest Elementary and Southwest Elementary Schools on the same property as the current schools, additional learning space at Challenger Elementary School, major renovations at Highlander Way Middle School.
  • Teaching tools - classroom and student instructional technology and classroom equipment.
  • Aging building infrastructure - pavement, asphalt, select roof replacements, flooring, lockers, upgrades to air conditioning, boilers and electrical systems for increased efficiency.

  • Community needs - new Community Center and new youth baseball and softball fields.
