Lansing School District hoping to add bond proposal to 2016 ballot

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – The Lansing School District is hoping to put a bond proposal on the 2016 ballot and they want your input.

The first of five community input meetings is happening Monday night at Pattengill Academy on Marshall Street in Lansing. Lansing School District officials are looking to get feedback on the proposal that would allow for building improvements if passed.

Over the next couple of weeks the district will entertain those community input sessions to discuss the possible bond millage proposal that would generate money to help improve schools in the district

Earlier this year the school board considered two different options that would help fund improvement projects within the district that the school superintendent says are necessary.

One option that’s still on the table is to sell Eastern High School. Another option is to increase the school’s current millage to raise property taxes up to $50 more per year.

The district is encouraging all parents, students and employees to attend those meetings to give feedback about the possible millage.

The second meeting will be held Tuesday morning at 10 at Elmhurst Learning Center.

6 News will be at Monday night’s meeting and have a full report on 6 News at 11.
