Dear Friend of the Dearborn Public Schools,

On Nov. 5 the voters in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights once again showed their support for the Dearborn Public Schools by approving the $76 million S.M.A.R.T. School Bond. This action is a clear message that our residents want to maintain safe, quality schools in our community.

On behalf of the Board of Education, I want to personally thank you for your support of this bond proposal but, more importantly, I want to thank you for caring about the students in our classrooms.

With the approval of the S.M.A.R.T. School Bond we will be able to move forward with improvements that will make our schools safer, our buildings more efficient, provide proper classroom space, enhance technology district-wide, and update an aging fleet of buses. I look forward to sharing the progress on the variety of projects that these bond funds will allow us to accomplish.

Whether you donated to the campaign, displayed a lawn sign, handed out flyers, worked a poll, made phone calls, or simply cast your vote in favor of our proposal your effort made a difference in this campaign and is deeply appreciated.

Again, thank you for your continued support.

Brian J. Whiston
