Facility Planning

Thanks to the support of the Washington Township community passing the referenda on the November 8, 2016 ballot, the district is preparing to make $185M in investments in two new facilities, and renovations for all buildings in our school district. These capital improvement upgrades will enhance our safety and security, provide technological upgrades, and ensure that our classrooms are designed to meet the latest in educational design trends. These improvements over the next few years will demonstrate what many community members already know… that public education and investment in our young people is a smart investment in our community.

Public Question for Project Referendum: “Shall MSD of Washington Township issue bonds or enter into a lease to finance the 2017 Safety, Capacity, Efficiency, Technology, Renovation and Construction Project which consists of updating, improving and construction at North Central High School; J. Everett Light Career Center; Eastwood, Northview and Westlane Middle Schools; Hilltop Developmental Preschool; Allisonville, Crooked Creek, Fox Hill, Greenbriar, Nora, Spring Mill, John Strange and Harcourt Elementary Schools; and Wyandotte, which is estimated to cost not more than $185,000,000 and is estimated to increase the property tax rate for debt service by a maximum of $0.2828 per $100 of assessed valuation?”

Public Question for Operating Referendum: “For the seven (7) calendar years immediately following the holding of the referenda, shall MSD of Washington Township impose a property tax rate that does not exceed eleven cents ($0.11) on each one hundred dollars ($100) of assessed valuation and that is in addition to all other property taxes imposed by the school corporation for the purpose of maintaining academic staff and programs and funding the operating costs of new school facilities?”
