We want to hear from you!

In 2013, the Northwest Community graciously passed significant bonds for our district. This year, in 2023, Northwest Community Schools has an opportunity to generate additional funding for necessary building improvements with a 0 mill increase over the prior year's levy. This means that the current bond rate of mills levied will remain the same should the Northwest Board of Education choose to pursue, and the community passes, an August 8, 2023 bond proposal. Based on evaluation of the current facilities, we have identified several needs district-wide for educational purposes. At this time, we are seeking your feedback to help us prioritize these needs throughout our district.


SURVEY:

We would like to ask you to complete the survey by clicking the link HERE. Your feedback is important to us!


NWCS Community Feedback Forum:

In addition to the survey, we will be hosting NWCS Community Feedback Forums to speak with the community about the survey and communicate important information regarding the potential for the Northwest Board of Education to pursue a bond proposal with a 0 mill increase from the prior year on the August 8, 2023 ballot. We would like to invite you to one of the NWCS Feedback Forums that will take place on the following Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00 pm in the NEC training room, located at 6900 Rives Junction Rd. Jackson, MI 49201:
