UCS Board of Education Approves 2018 Bond Proposal

The Utica Community Schools Board of Education voted unanimously (7-0) in mid-August to place a bond proposal on the November ballot to address safety and security, technology and infrastructure improvements identified through the district’s strategic, long-range facility improvement program.  Voter approval of the bond proposal has been structured to keep the tax rate at or below the current level.  An insert in our newsletter explains the Board's action and outlines the purpose of the bond proposal.  This proposal will impact every UCS student and school.  We will share more about the bond proposal when school opens.  For more information, you can also contact me at or visit
