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.

Bond Construction Update: June 2019

Summer Construction Under Way at Amerman, Hillside and NHS
Board of Education and Administrators stand at the Hillside groundbreaking site.
Despite May’s incessant rain, construction projects are under way and on track this summer at Amerman, Hillside and Northville High School as part of the $104.85 million, multi-year bond initiative generously approved by voters in 2017.
Construction crews began site work this spring at Hillside. Barriers erected in April in the Hillside back parking lot restricting public access to the west side of the site will remain in place in one form or another throughout the two-year project.
The public is reminded that Northville Parks and Recreation Administration Office which normally is located at Hillside will be temporarily relocated to Northville Township Hall at 44405 Six Mile Road.
Hillside Middle School will undergo an exciting and significant renovation including the construction of a two-story academic wing addition on the west side of the building. The result will be a nearly new, modern school that will increase learning spaces and provide opportunities for growth.
Also included in the bond construction work is more than $3 million in bond projects at Amerman Elementary and $9 million in additions and improvements at Northville High School.
Current construction work at Amerman includes transforming learning spaces and classrooms throughout the school with flexible furniture; upgrading the media center / collaboration area; remodeling the main entrance vestibule for increased security; and upgrading mechanical/electrical infrastructure, among other projects.
Construction under way at NHS includes upgrades to support current and future enrollment such as a cafeteria/multi-purpose space addition and a new student physical education, fitness and training center. Renovations will be taking place in STEM/STEAM labs, music spaces, and the FORUM large group instruction room. The main entrance will receive security upgrades and learning spaces will be transformed with flexible furniture. The project also includes upgrades to athletic fields and multi-purpose turf to replace the existing high school athletic field for physical education, athletics, band and community use.
The design phase for bond work at Meads Mill, Moraine and Thornton Creek will take place this summer. Construction is expected to begin at those school sites in summer 2020.
