Wayne County Regional Enhancement Millage
IMPORTANT EDUCATION PROPOSAL ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT
There is an important education issue on the November ballot that we want to inform you about. It is called the Wayne County Regional Enhancement Millage. School Districts across the county, including ours, asked to put this proposal before the voters to improve educational programs in each of our districts. The proposal would bring in $1.9 million to our Van Buren community, to be used to improve our educational program through technology; summer enrichment and STEM, and security improvements. The link below provides details about the proposal.
Van Buren Public Schools, as part of its routine maintenance plan, had water testing completed at all school buildings. All buildings, with the exception of Haggerty School, had little to no problem areas.
Please refer to Haggerty School’s website for further information on the plan for addressing the problem areas with the potable water system.
