Disappointing results of Kentwood’s building upgrade proposal

By now you all have probably seen the results of yesterday’s vote on the Kentwood proposals. While we will celebrate the passing of the building and site/sinking fund, we are disappointed that the technology, safety, and building upgrade proposal was defeated. The citizens of our community are valued partners and we are committed to using their funds responsibly and carefully. The fact that the vote was split means that we needed to better identify what was needed and why it was needed. At the same time, this does not change the fact that we are committed to providing an education of excellence to every child within our district.

We appreciate those that went out to vote and the fact that they shared their perspectives

Thank you to all of you who worked so hard to get the word out.
