Mervilde's $183 million dollar bond increase for Washington Township

EVENT: Public Information Meeting about Washington Township Schools’ $183 million building plan

SPONSORED BY: Citizens For Education (CFE)
DATE: Thursday, Jan 31 at 7 pm.
PLACE: Pleasant View Lutheran Church
801 W. 73rd St. (Corner of 73rd and Hoover Rd.)

45% of our property taxes go to our Washington Township schools—approx. $100 million/year!

80% of Washington Township residents do not have children in Washington Township Schools

A 2005 $50 million Bond Compromise Agreement was accepted—and broken by the Board in 2006.

A potential $185 million construction bond issue is awaiting the next Board.

Does CFE want an excellent education for our students? YES
Does CFE believe that there is waste in the school budget? YES
Does CFE believe that school dollars should be devoted to education and teachers FIRST? YES
Does CFE want to keep school dollars in the classroom for teaching, not for building classrooms? YES
