On March 10, 2020, voters in the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools’ communities will be asked to consider a bond proposal for facility and site improvements addressing equity of facilities, enhancing safety and security throughout the school district, furniture and playground upgrades, school bus purchases, and addressing imminent infrastructure and technology needs at most facilities. The district is able to maintain the existing school debt levy (4.02 mills) and offer this bond proposal with ZERO INCREASE to the current tax rate. The total bond issue cost is $275 million.
Estimated ZERO INCREASE to the current annual debt millage rate: If the bond proposal is approved by the voters it is estimated that the annual debt millage required to repay the District’s outstanding and the proposed bonds will remain at or below the current debt millage rate of 4.02 mills.
The 2020 Bond touches every building in the District with a focus on creating equity across all schools, addressing imminent building and site infrastructure issues, enhancing learning spaces through both remodeling and building, and upgrading technology throughout the District.
