Renewal Non-Homestead Operating Millage

Tuesday, November 5th is Election Day.  As you exercise your right to vote and make your voice heard, please remember that Van Dyke Public Schools has a Replacement Operating Millage on the ballot.  This is a Non-Homestead Millage, and will be of NO COST to homeowners and renters if it passes.  If the millage passes, it will allow the district to recover lost funds and extend the current 18 mills through 2038.  If the millage does not pass, the state will not restore the funding and we will continue to lose tens of thousands of dollars a year that voters have already approved.  As of now, we are losing about $74,000 per year that the district will be able to recover if the millage passes.  This election is important for the future of our district and our children.  Thank you for always helping us to support Every Student, Every Day, No Matter What.

Van Dyke Public Schools Problem-Solving Process

In Van Dyke Public Schools, we strive to work together as a community to support your children.  Connecting home and school is one of the most important factors in increasing productivity and academic achievement for your students.  As much as we love hearing from you when things are going well, we know that sometimes you need to let us know your concerns. 

Our goal is to solve issues quickly and carefully, with every child’s safety and education in mind.  Because of this, we must have a proper channeling of complaints. 

For items involving students during school hours, please follow the steps below:

  1. Contact your child’s teacher directly regarding anything that took place during instructional time.  This will provide you with the clearest and quickest form of information.  You may contact the teacher via email (Click on the teacher if you are in the Parent Portal.) or by calling the school.  Remember that the teacher will not be able to talk during instructional time, but they will be able to call you back within 24 hours if you leave a message. 
  2. If you have not received a resolution at that time, the next step would be to call the building principal or assistant principal.  They will be able to assist you, and you will receive a call back within 24 hours if you leave a message.
  3. After speaking to building administration, if you do not feel your issue has been resolved, please contact the district’s administration building.  District administration will continue the investigation by speaking with the building and with you to work on a resolution. 

Following this process will save you time and frustration, and will allow all parties to properly investigate what you may bring up during our conversations.  We appreciate you as partners in the educational process, and look forward to watching your children grow together.
