Few days left to take bond survey

The Northview Public Schools’ Board of Education is asking for additional feedback regarding the possibility of placing a bond issue before voters in November 2011.  The Board surveyed the community in May 2011 with general questions regarding the community perspective of the need to improve school district facilities.

Since that time more details regarding the “what” of a potential bond have been developed.  The cost to taxpayers has also been determined.  Now we are asking you to provide additional feedback based on more detailed information regarding the replacement, remodeling, and addition to our facilities as well as improvements to our technology systems.
