The Big Rapids Board of Education is considering a bond proposal for the November 2017 election. Superintendent Tim Haist says they've been thinking about it for a while.
“It's something that we've been looking at for the past couple years, ever since our strategic planning sessions a couple years ago. We knew that there were a lot of great things that we're doing, but we also know that there are some areas that we need to continue to improve.”
However, Haist says community feedback is important and they want to hear from the Big Rapids school community before deciding what to include in the proposal. He encourages everyone who is interested to share their thoughts and opinions at one of a series of community listening sessions on:
April 18 at 6:00 pm at Brookside Elementary
April 18 at 7:30 pm at Riverside Elementary
April 26 at 6:00 pm at the Big Rapids Middle School
April 26 at 7:30 pm at the Big Rapids High School
For those who cannot attend, Haist says you can go online to brps.org and select the Community Input link to provide feedback or you can call the Superintendent's Office at 231-796-2627.
