Bond Extension Proposal
The St. Louis Public Schools will place a bond extension proposal on the May 6, 2014 ballot. This proposal will not increase the millage rate being levied on our local tax payers meaning if this proposal were to pass it would not cause your taxes to rise.
This bond extension proposal will address student safety, technology needs, energy efficiency, transportation and numerous other facility issues that would be difficult or impossible to address using general fund dollars.
You can find a detailed list of work that would be completed along with estimated costs and some Frequently Asked Questions by clicking on the links below. If you have any additional questions or would like more information please feel free to call the Superintendent’s Office at (989)681-2545.

Skype Field Trip to Australia
Have you ever talked to a marine biologist about sharks? We did! The students of Carrie Knause and Nikkari were able to connect with shark researcher, Dr. Derek Burkholder via Skype. Students were able to get their shark questions answered right from the expert. Skype connected the students of Nikkari with Dr. Derek while he was working in Australia. Dr. Derek was able to answer our shark questions and engage the students from thousands of miles away. Most importantly, students walked out of the Skype experience with a better understanding of this fascinating creature.
