The Grosse Pointe Public Schools System is considering a school bond, if it’s approved. The voters might approve a 111,040,000 dollar bond. On May 21, an attorney from Miller Canfield presented a proposal to the bond. It will be voted on November 6th, 2018. There are orange stickers around almost every school in the district. The orange stickers represent all of the things that are are going to be fixed or replaced. This would include lights, pipe systems, air conditioners, computers and so on. Although there are a lot of supporters there are also people against the bond. Secretary Cindy Pangborn and Trustee Ahmed Ismail are some people against this bond. Board members Brian Summerfield, Margaret Weetrz, Judy Gafa, Kathleen Abke and Christofer Profeta voted in favor of the bond. This bond has gone through a lot of meetings. “A lot of the community has already been involved in this process.” said Summerfield, “ It’s really been three years in the making. It’s time we do this and move forward with this, because the district needs it.” According to District officials the average GPPSS building is 77 years old and some of these old buildings need updates.
