May 4th Ballot Proposal Passes! - A Note from the Superintendent:

On behalf of the Board of Education, I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to the voters of the West Bloomfield School District on the successful passage of our May 4th ballot proposal with nearly 75% of the votes being cast in favor. Approval of our school district’s non-homestead millage proposal allows the school district to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills on non-homestead property which was originally approved by voters in 2014.

This will generate $691,000 to the General Fund beginning next school year with approximately $8.2 million or about 12 percent of the West Bloomfield School District’s operating budget throughout the remainder of the millage.

I am grateful to the parents, students, and other members of the community who helped us inform residents about the millage proposal.  Thank you for helping to make the greater West Bloomfield area an even better place to live and raise a family.

Again, we extend our thanks to the people residing in the West Bloomfield School District for supporting their schools.

Thank you WBSD Community for Support Our Schools on School Background Image

The May 4th Ballot Proposal was passed by the voters of the West Bloomfield School District with 3,238 (75%) YES votes and 1,090 NO votes.

Headlee Restoration - May 4, 2021

The West Bloomfield School District Board of Education unanimously approved a 2.0 mill non-homestead millage restoration proposal during their Jan. 25 regular meeting. This proposal will appear on the May 4, 2021 ballot.

The ballot proposal calls for a 2.0 mill increase in the non-homestead millage rate.  This will raise the current non-homestead tax rate from its current rolled back rate of 16.9544 to 18.9544 mills.  While the school district can only levy 18 mills on non-homestead property, the millage above 18 mills will protect the school district from future rollbacks.  

This proposal seeks restoration of the non-homestead tax rate that was approved by voters in 2014.
