Video Gives Voters Guided Tour of Bond Proposal

A video Godwin Heights Public Schools made provides viewers with a guided tour of the improvements the district wants to get done should voters approve a $14.1 million bond request on Tuesday, May 5.

The short film uses video shots and architect’s renderings to explain the district’s vision for its students and their families. From there it outlines the safety and security upgrades that would be made, as well as traffic flow, technology and athletic, heating and energy improvements.

The video specifically explains the plans the district has in mind for West Godwin, Middle School, North Godwin and High School.

Superintendent Bill Fetterhoff said the video concisely outlines the district’s plan to enhance students’ safety as well as make essential improvements to the school district’s buildings and equipment without raising property taxes.

The district’s current debt is set to expire from the current levy of 4.8 mils to 3.2 mils. As a result, the district is proposing a new bond issue which will continue the existing debt millage at the same level.

“By sharing our video, the message remains intact as it continues to be shared so everyone hears and sees the original message regarding the district’s needs,” Fetterhoff said.
