Wayne County Regional Enhancement Education Millage Proposal


School districts in Wayne County have placed a proposal on the November 8th ballot to provide added funding for our schools. It is the “Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal.”

If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools.  Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years. 

The proposal would cost a homeowner with a home value of $150,000 (Taxable value of $75,000) about $15 per month.

The Board of Education and Administration have discussed possible uses for the funds which could include items such as: recruitment and retention of staff, maintenance of district buildings, technology, improve school programs, and supporting classroom and instructional needs.
