Clarkston Community Schools - 2022 Bond - Our Kids. Our Community. Our Future.

School is out for the summer, and construction is beginning around the district! Residents will notice lots of activity as we begin work on the new junior high school, and several of our elementary buildings will be getting air conditioning, so there will be work at those areas as well. These include Andersonville Elementary, Clarkston Elementary, North Sashabaw Elementary and Sashabaw Middle School. Our other elementary buildings - Bailey Lake, Independence, Pine Knob and Springfield Plains - will be outfitted with air conditioning next summer.

Thank you for your patience as we work on building and improvements, and for your ongoing support of our schools!

In November 2022, Clarkston voters approved the Clarkston Community Schools no tax rate increase bond proposal for $197,500,000. The proposal is part of a long-term master plan for district facilities with three key areas of focus: Safety and Security, Aging Building Systems, and a New Junior High.

Proposed safety and security improvements include building air quality, providing air conditioning in classrooms, ADA upgrades, door hardware replacements, building card access controls, additional generator circuits for life safety systems, and fire alarm system replacements.  In addition, the bond will address the most critical aging building systems.

A new Junior High School will be constructed to replace the 63-year-old aging Junior High on the existing site. The new facility will provide larger classrooms to support innovative and collaborative learning, improve ADA accessibility, and improve traffic flow while preserving and updating the current auditorium and construction trades areas.
