When Plymouth-Canton voters head to the polls May 7, they'll consider a $114 million bond proposal to replace an aging Central Middle School, replace buses and upgrade technology throughout the district.
The $114 bond proposal, which the district says will not increase the district's current millage rate of 4.1 mills if passed, will replace Central Middle School with a new building on district-owned property at Canton Center and Cherry Hill roads in Canton, install fiberoptic networking throughout the district, add tablet devices and laptop computers to each K-12 student, make building improvements and gradually replace the district's outdated fleet of buses.
If the bond is approved, voters would opt to hold the rate from an existing millage at 4.1 mills rather than decreasing to 3.75, or saving about $35 a year for owners of a $200,000 home.
The election will take place May 7. The final day to register to vote is April 8, and the final day to vote absentee is May 6.
Plymouth-Canton Community Schools offers additional details on the many facets of the bond on its district website.
