Thank You, Coopersville Community!

On May 3, 2022, our community voted to pass a bond proposal that is generating $42,900,000 for district-wide improvements to address identified and ongoing building, facility, and site issues.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is a

bond proposal?

A bond proposal is how a public school district asks its community for authorization to borrow money for capital expenditures by selling bonds. 


How can funds from a bond be spent?

Voter-approved bond funds can be spent on new construction, additions, remodeling, site improvements, athletic facilities, playgrounds, buses, furnishings, equipment, and technology. Funds raised through the sale of bonds cannot be used on operational expenses such as employee salaries and benefits, school supplies, and textbooks. Bond funds must be kept separate from operating funds and must be audited by an independent auditing firm. 


What are the key investments the bond focuses on?

  • Continual improvement to safety and security

  • Addressing campus-wide infrastructure

  • Upgrading learning environments and programs
