White Pigeon schools – Millage renewal turned down

Officials with White Pigeon Community Schools will have to assess what to do next after a millage renewal request was turned down Tuesday.

At stake was renewal of eighty-five hundredths of a mill, amounting to about $2 million.

Superintendent Shelly McBride said she is disappointed with the outcome and will await direction from the district’s board of education to determine what to do next.

The request was a continuation of the bond voters passed in 2014 and again in 2019 to benefit the 730-student district.

Tuesday’s vote failed by virtue of 402 no votes to 359 in favor. The measure was actually passed by the district’s St. Joseph County voters, but overwhelmingly defeated – by more than a two-to-one ratio – by district voters in Cass County.
