Hello parents and art friends! I want to make you aware of the school funding crisis that we are facing in Michigan. Hudsonville Public Schools cannot survive if there are further state funding cuts to our budget – our schools will see deep cuts to critical programs, services, and valuable teachers. Please read the following from our Superintendent, Mr. Nick Ceglarek, and call, write, or email our Governor and legislative leaders to let them know how you feel. Thank you!
Time is running out. Our Governor and legislative leaders in Lansing are proposing devastating cuts to public education. In addition to the $165 per pupil cut to all public schools, the State Budget Director has notified school leaders another $127 per pupil cut is coming in less than 30 days. The only way this will not happen is if our Governor and legislators can agree to a funding solution addressing the revenue shortfall. To find out how to help prevent this funding crisis, please listen to my message and visit the links here: FUNDING CRISIS
