2020 Bond Proposal Information
BYRON CENTER PUBLIC SCHOOLS
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT,
BYRON CENTER COMMUNITY!
Want to register to vote or obtain an absentee ballot? Click these links to be directed to the State of Michigan website for those applications.
Over the last year, the Board of Education, through a community survey and conversations, staff meetings, and work sessions has worked to gather input on our growing community. Based on this input the Byron Center community will vote on this bond proposal on May 5, 2020. This proposal is an extension of the current millage and would not increase the current millage rate of 7 mills. It would simply extend the debt and focus on capacity needs and support improvements for safety, security, facility improvements, and technology.
Please explore our site to learn more about the upcoming bond proposal and don't forget to vote on May 5!

Each jurisdiction must maintain at least one (1) location on election day where any voter can appear in-person to receive and submit a ballot, including an individual with a disability that inhibits the individual from voting with an absentee ballot remotely. Byron Center and Gaines Charter Township will be utilizing their respective Town Halls for this purpose.
Registered voters must apply for an absentee ballot and return it to the clerk’s office, by mail or in-person, by 8:00 pm on May 5, 2020.
