Hillman Community Schools Hoping to Build New Elementary School with $22.1 Million Bond

Hillman Community Schools is looking to build a new elementary school with a bond in Tuesday’s election.

The current elementary school is a 60-year old building and Hillman is hoping that the bond will help them build a new facility that matches the school’s safety standards.

“This is a long-term commitment for the Hillman community, and we want to create an environment where our kids can learn, and then go out and compete. Compete with everybody on a national level,” Pam Rader, the Interim Superintendent for Hillman Community Schools, said. “We want them to compete and win, and we feel like this is going to be the next step to help them do that.”

The bond is $22.1 million, which would allow Hillman to build not only a new 40,000 square-foot elementary school as a new addition to the high school, but would also allow them to provide more after-school programs, technology, security and new gym additions for all k-12 students.

If approved in tomorrow’s election, the estimated millage for the bonds first year is 3.38 mills, while the estimated average millage for the new bonds over the 30-year bond term is 5.07 mills.

The bond will be on Tuesday’s election ballot and polls are open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
