Bond 2020: Our Vision for the Future

Bond Proposal

The Bond 2020 School Bond Millage vote has been postponed until August 4, 2020 due to concerns about the health risks to our community members and election workers associated with the Covid-19 virus containment efforts.  This action was taken by the GAS School Board in a special meeting held on March 19, 2020.   

The Goodrich Area Schools Board of Education is asking the community to vote on a NO-TAX RATE INCREASE bond on the August 4, 2020 ballot.  If passed, it would provide district-wide improvements to address identified and ongoing facility, safety, and educational needs based on years of strategic planning, facility assessments, and stakeholder input.

This bond will address security improvements that will update building access control, security cameras, and door monitoring. 

Many of our core infrastructure systems (mechanical, electrical), along with roofing and blacktop/pavement have outlived their expected life cycles.  The district has continued to address preventative maintenance as much as possible; we are simply to the point where systems can no longer just be repaired. 

Improvements will be made district-wide for network infrastructure, phone systems, classroom AV and student/teacher devices. 

The addition of a full-sized gymnasium will allow greater scheduling flexibility of PE classes, free the use of the current multi-purpose room for a cafeteria and provides additional practice space for all district student athletes.

In addition, the Bond will address the changing needs of our students inside of the classrooms with renovations for collaborative, hands-on learning program development at all buildings.  These areas will promote critical thinking, creativity, and communication.  This bond will introduce modern learning environments for our students.
