The Chelsea Board of Education listened to a trio of presentations on Monday, May 20 that included an update from the Bond Committee and a representative from EpicMRA, the company hired to survey district voters about a potential bond proposal. (See a copy of that presentation below.)
Also presenting were student robotics participants from both the middle school and high school and project-based learning students from Beach Middle School.
Bond Committee representatives reviewed what had been done up to this point from numerous meetings to assessing programs and facilities throughout the district. They are recommending a proposed $81 million, 20-year bond to the Board of Education.
It’s expected that proposed ballot language will be in front of the Board of Education on June 10 for further discussion during a work session and the formal vote to proceed to the Department of Treasury is expected to take place on June 24.
If approved first by the Board of Education, then by the state and finally by district voters, the bond proceeds would be used to modernize classrooms and facilities, improve and upgrade security and programs throughout the district._May 16, 2019 - Bond - Key Stakeholders
