Bond 2017 Construction Updates

Thank you Northville Schools Community!


On Tuesday November 7, 2017, the Northville Public Schools community overwhelmingly supported a $104.85 million bond proposal to upgrade Northville Public Schools’ aging facilities, enhance existing building security, and provide modern learning environments across the district – all while maintaining the current debt millage rate for taxpayers.

Passage of the bond will benefit Northville Public Schools students, families and community members in a variety of ways:
  • Learning environment upgrades to meet modern teaching and learning practices
  • Improvements to address the aging infrastructure of buildings
  • Safety and security upgrades that build on security initiatives already in place
  • Energy and operational initiatives to improve environmental quality and efficiency of buildings, as well as reduce operational expenses.

The bond program is the culmination of a two-year facility and infrastructure planning initiative to upgrade the district’s aging buildings to support learner-centered school communities as we build on our long-standing Tradition of Excellence and seek to open a World of Possibilities for and with each of our students, and in partnership with our families and community.


Thoughtful planning is under way and construction is beginning for this comprehensive, multi-year facilities upgrade and construction program that will touch every classroom and school.
