Centreville school board approves millage application

Centreville Public Schools officials are poised to make official a May 2 millage increase request.

Board of education members on Monday approved submission of a pre-qualification bond fund application. The document will be sent to and reviewed by Michigan Department of Treasury. Its approval would give Centreville the green light to pursue the millage-increase request.

Superintendent Chad Brady said it appears the district will ask voters for eight-tenths of a mill increase, which would bring the district’s levy up to 7 mills.

He said some of the potential projects potentially covered in the proposed request include a designated cafeteria at the elementary school, a multi-purpose building, safety and security improvements districtwide, main entry to the high school, and energy and efficiency improvements districtwide.

Enrollment projections call for the district to exceed 900 students within five years. With 852 students, it is the fourth-largest of St. Joseph County’s eight K-12 school districts.
