South Haven Public Schools are asking for approval of a millage today and there are many school issues on ballots around the state. With the pandemic, are schools finding they need to upgrade their technology with so many students taking classes online?
“I think there is some space for that. A lot of schools had to go through laptop purchases to be able to take things home,” says executive director of the Michigan Association of School Boards, Don Wotruba. “Sadly, the shortfall that most schools is facing is the connectivity issue that can’t be addressed by their buildings. That’s a systemwide, nationwide problem.”
Wotruba says many districts are looking to address a balanced calendar and do some upgrades when interest rates are low. The polls are open until 8 pm. In the South Haven area, there is road construction in Casco Township, but the clerk tells our newsroom roads to the polling locations are open.
