School Election on November 4

On November 4, voters living in the Bellaire Public Schools district will be asked to renew a two-year, 18-mill non-homestead tax levy that will allow the district to collect approximately $3.4 million – which is 86 percent of our operating budget.  Non-homestead properties refer to industrial, commercial and some agricultural property, which includes “second homes”.  This renewal will not increase taxes at all for non-homestead property owners.

Being an out-of-formula school district means that we do not receive the per pupil funding from the State of Michigan based upon how many students are enrolled in our District.  Our budget depends almost completely on the local tax base collected on this non-homestead property.  

Four Board member seats will also be on the ballot.  Mike Robinson, Walt Mann, and Peter Wendling are incumbents while Amy George will be a newcomer to the Board.  Long time board member Scott Steiner has decided to not run for reelection.

 
Press Release: Open Enrollment for 2014-15

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

From: Bellaire Public Schools Board of Education

The priority at Bellaire Public Schools has always been to provide a quality education for our students.  One component that truly aids in that goal is having a low student-to-teacher ratio as we believe that class size is a critical part of our children’s education.  Therefore, during the 2014-15 school year, the only new open enrollment/school of choice requests that will be considered will be for students entering the following grades 1, 7, 8, 9, and 10.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact any of your School Board members.

“The mission of Bellaire Public Schools is to provide an environment which develops self-sufficient and productive citizens to adapt to a challenging and changing world.”
