Important Press Release
At their regular Board Meeting on January 20, 2015 the Armada Area Schools Board of Education approved placing a $4.1 million dollar technology bond issue on the May 5, 2015 ballot. If approved, the bond issue will not raise taxes and the district does not expect to borrow from the State to pay the debt service on the bonds. The district will extend their participation in the State’s School Bond Loan Fund program one year from 2031 to 2032.
The technology bond would be a significant refresh of the existing technology currently in the district. District technology items in the bond issue include a network refresh, phone refresh, wireless network refresh, teacher/staff/student computers and tablets, security camera refresh and additional security cameras, document cameras, document scanners, classroom projectors, printers, calculators, lab headsets, copy machines, high school auditorium equipment, classroom and gymnasium audio upgrades, and a high school football and track scoreboard.
