Clawson Public Schools is asking voters to consider a bond proposal on the August 3, 2021 ballot. If approved, it would generate $55.9 million with NO tax increase. It would allow Clawson to strengthen our district for the long-term and invest in safe, secure, 21st Century learning at all grade levels. It would create a secure, DK-12 Central Campus and dedicated Early Childhood Center, sized to meet current and future enrollment projections. The plan was developed by a 45-member steering committee, commissioned by the Board of Education and comprised of a cross-section of the community, including parents, business owners, school teachers, administrators, staff, students, city leaders, and school board members.

This ZERO MILL bond proposal would generate $55.9 million!

Tax Impact

If approved by voters, the bond would cause NO increase to the current millage rate and would generate $55.9 million for investments in Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle and High School students.
