Three percent of proposed bond to go to athletics, transportation

May 1, 2019

A portion of the bond proposal Ludington Area Schools is asking the public to approve at the polls May 7 will go toward the athletics facilities and transportation.

If approved, 3 percent of the more than $100 million district-wide project would go toward athletics, according to superintendent Jason Kennedy.

Kennedy said the board of education intentionally focused on teaching and learning when creating the design proposal, however there are some needs that extracurricular activities have within the district.

“We wanted to allocate a small amount of money to ensure that we are updating all facilities,” Kennedy said. “Part of the bond project is the impact on all kids and activities they participate in. Finding ways to ensure that we are touching all venues — the arts, both performing and visual — as well as athletics; all of the extracurricular activities. Those are all important in the scope of a child’s education.”
