Information on RESA Millage Ballot Proposal

Educational Enhancement Millage On Nov. 8 Ballot

School districts in Wayne County have placed a Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal on the November ballot to provide added funding for their schools, including Dearborn Public Schools.

A recent state study on school funding concluded that the state is under funding schools, particularly students at-risk and English language learners.  In Wayne County, we have more students living in poverty and eligible for food aid than most counties in our state.  And the English Language learner population has grown from 20,000 students to 30,000 students in just five years.

What is an enhancement millage? Michigan’s Constitution gives the state control over funding for public schools with the one exception of an enhancement millage that can be passed at the county level for operating purposes. The state requires that any money generated from an enhancement millage be shared equally on a per-student basis among the local school districts within that county, with each district being given control of how the dollars would be used to support their students.

Passage of this proposal will help Dearborn Public Schools in our efforts to help our students be successful by meeting their needs. For more information, go to www.resa.net/millage

وضعت مديريات التربية والتعليم في مقاطعة وين اقتراح الاقتراع على ورقة الاقتراع في تشرين الثاني لتوفير التمويل للمدارس .هناك نقص في تمويل المدارس من الدولة  ، وخاصة الطلاب المبتدئين باللغة الإنجليزية. في مقاطعة وين، لدينا المزيد من الطلاب الذين يعيشون في الفقر و مؤهلون للحصول على المساعدات الغذائية من معظم المقاطعات في دولتنا. وقد نما عدد السكان المتعلمين اللغة الإنجليزية من 20،000 طالب إلى 30،000 طالب في خمس سنوات فقط. هذا الاقتراح     يساعد طلابنا على النجاح من خلال تلبية احتياجاتهم. لمزيد من المعلومات
