Chelsea School District

Chelsea School District Bond

The Chelsea School District Board of Education asked the community to vote on a no tax rate increase bond proposal on November 5, 2019. The bond, which was approved, will generate $81,000,000 to provide district-wide improvements to address identified and ongoing facility needs based on years of strategic planning, facility assessments, and community input. The bond will be sold in 3 series, protecting the District for the next 10-15 years.

The average age of the District's school buildings is 49 years old, and the state of Michigan defines the useful life of a school building at 40 years. With a total square footage of the buildings across the District at 660,000, many core infrastructure systems have outlived their expected life cycles. While the District has continued to address preventative maintenance as much as possible, it has simply gotten to the point where systems can no longer be repaired and should be replaced. In addition, the District has not addressed the changing needs of our students inside of the classrooms with flexible learning environments that promote collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication. This bond will support safe and modern learning environments for our students.
