Key Communicators For Sinking Fund Millage Replacement

Several Moraine parents are “Key Communicators” who have been informed about the sinking fund renewal and can answer your questions: Mindy Eichenberg, Joy Hudyma, Kelly Masters, Melissa Stuart, Mamtha Balasubramaniam, Marissa Edwards, Cynthia Stump. Please see or email the Moraine PTA Key Communicator’s at keycommunicators@morainepta.org
to reach out to these parents for information.

Please join us on Monday, Feb. 3 at 7:00 PM in Moraine’s Media Center for our PTA meeting. In addition to general business, our guest will be Mrs. Mary Kay Gallagher, Superintendent who will speak about  Northville Public Schools’ March 2020 Sinking Fund Millage Replacement.  

On March 10, 2020, voters in Northville Public Schools will be asked to consider replacing our current Sinking Fund millage with a new Sinking Fund millage that will extend the current .9519-mill levy from 2021 to 2025 and provide for broader uses of the proceeds, including instructional technology and security equipment. The current levy expires on Dec. 31, 2020. The .9519-mill five-year request is a REPLACEMENT of the existing sinking fund millage and would NOT result in an increase over the current millage rate.  

If supported, the sinking fund millage will continue to provide approximately $3 million each year to fund building and site repairs, along with instructional technology and safety and security upgrades.  This funding helps protect the community’s investment in the School District’s buildings and sites, while preserving General Fund dollars to accomplish the District’s core mission of instruction and student learning.  Priority projects for the next five-year period fall into the categories of Instructional Technology & Security, Energy & Operational Efficiency, and Health & Safety.

Please reach out to our key communicators or see the District website for more information:

Additionally, Dr. Bryan will briefly present on the 2017 Bond remodeling update work that will occur at Moraine over the summer. This is a PTA meeting you will not want to miss. Please feel free to invite neighbors, whether they have students at Moraine or not, who may have an interest in learning more about the upcoming Sinking Fund Millage Replacement request.
