RENEWAL of SINKING FUND
Our Board of Education approved the resolution to move forward with the plan to renew our Sinking Fund. This will be on the March 8th Election Ballot.
Please remember this is a renewal – the same proposal which includes 3 mills for two years.
The goal for the approved Sinking Fund will focus on new heating ventilation units in all classrooms, updated heating controls, and finalized High School Science Labs.
In February of 2014, our Byron Area Schools’ community supported the Sinking Fund proposal. This included 3 mills for two years. With the funds generated through our Sinking Fund, we have been able to complete the following projects:
- “Wireless” Infrastructure in all three of our school buildings
- New Boilers for Byron Elementary, including some new pipes to vacate the inefficient pipes located outside under the sidewalk
- New Boilers in our High School
- Updated High School Science Classroom Labs (during of Summer of 2016)
Please feel free to contact Tricia Murphy-Alderman, our Superintendent, if you have any questions or concerns. You may reach her at 810-266-4881.
