Petoskey school bond proposal would fund safety upgrades | #schoolsaftey

PETOSKEY — The Public Schools of Petoskey Board of Education recently approved placing a bond on the November ballot centered around school and student safety.

If approved, the bond would fund necessary upgrades to the district’s facilities, including to security cameras, fire alarms, building entrances and more.

The bond would include a .85 mill. This means for every $1,000 of tax-assessed value a homeowner has, they would have to pay 85 cents.

Superintendent Jeff Leslie said that even before he joined the district in August 2022, school safety was a concern for many students and families. A full facility assessment was conducted last fall to see what areas need to be improved.

Even before the district got the facilities assessment report back from Navigate 360, the shooting at Michigan State University in February brought safety and security concerns back to the forefront.

“That really heightened the awareness that we’ve got to make sure that we’re doing something here in Petoskey to keep our students and staff safe,” Leslie said.
