GWINN, MI--  The Gwinn School District is taking steps to address deficits and personnel changes. 

School Board President Ashley Jenema issued the following press release Wednesday:

"Gwinn Area Community Schools Board of Education is moving forward in stabilizing the school district and addressing school budget reduction needs.

GWINN, MI--   The Gwinn Area Community Schools District is trying again to pass a millage proposal to fix critical needs. 

Officials are asking for a 1-mill increase over 15 years, which would generate $4.4 million in bonds. 

Superintendent Tom Jayne says the money would be used to replace two elementary school roofs, buy eight school buses in the next five years, update technology and building safety, and replace parking lots pitted by potholes. 

GWINN, MI--   The superintendent of Gwinn Area Community Schools says the district will ask voters again to consider two proposals to address critical building and vehicle needs. 

Tom Jayne says the $1.56 million bond proposal and 1-mill sinking fund would have fixed roofs, replaced an aging bus fleet, and purchased new technology.  He says those needs affect how the district can teach.
