2020 Millage

Flint Community Schools                                                                         Vote on March 10

City of Flint Millage

 

Honor our roots. Build for the future.

On March 10, 2020, residents living in the School District of the City of Flint will be able to vote on the renewal of a Flint Community Schools millage that was passed in 2010.

 

The millage is not a tax increase for the citizens of Flint—it keeps school-related tax rates exactly the same as they are now.  The millage maintains the current rate of 4 mills on residential properties. The mills levied will be divided into Fiscal Stability Bonds to reduce the district’s legacy debt and Sinking Fund Dollars to improve the District’s infrastructure. If approved by voters on March 10, the millage would go into effect in 2021.

 

FCS is working to consolidate school buildings to invest in the future of our students and our community while strengthening our district. This funding will support that work.

 

Funding will help get rid of debt so that we may:

  • Keep class sizes low
  • Invest in our teachers and staff with competitive wages and benefits
  • Build on the growth in our academics that we experienced last year
  • Grow the Community Schools model to increase important wrap around services for children and families

 

In addition to the new boilers that have already been placed in every building, school building investments will include:

  • New lighting in hallways
  • New roofs for remaining facilities
  • Upgrades to the exteriors of our facilities
