Bond Issue Approved for Ypsilanti Schools

Ypsilanti, MI – The Ypsilanti Board of Education has ceremonially approved the district's plans to ask voters to approve a 48-point-three million dollar bond issue for technology upgrades.
Of that amount, it's estimated that eight-point-eight million would be spent at the high school, six-point-five million at the district's two middle schools, and 12-point-three million at the elementary schools.
Money would also be set aside to build a new transportation depot and to buy 10 new school busses.
The issue will be presented to the state treasurer's office on April 19th, and the school board will add its official approval at the board's April 23rd meeting.
The bond election is set for August 7th.
