According to the Lansing State Journal, school officials say a growing community and the demands of 21st century education are the reasons behind a $25.2 million bond request going before Dewitt voters on Nov. 8.

Superintendent John Deiter said, "everyone benefits from this bond.  Students and teachers get better technology and facilities.  Parents get peace of mind knowing our schools are as safe as they can be."

The money, to be spent over four years, won't lead to an increase in property taxes, which will stay at 10 mills, or $500 a year for a home with a market value of $200,000.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
