A Letter to the Community
First and foremost, I want to thank all of the students, staff and community members who worked hard to advocate for a better future for our kids. I am deeply disappointed that the people of our district didn’t see the value in the proposal and how it could have created greater learning opportunities for our kids. With that being said, We will look at the data and see what we could have done better. When only 19% of the eligible voters turn out for a proposal of this magnitude, it becomes difficult to decipher if the contents of the proposal were a factor, or if we simply didn’t do enough to encourage voter participation. Nevertheless, we will continue to advocate for our kids. We will not let this setback interfere with our goal to always champion for our kids!
Yours in education,

2023 BOND SCOPE
We are excited about the possibilities this Bond could bring to the Grove community.
On April 4th, voters in the Grove Schools District will have the opportunity to vote on an important proposal to invest in the future of Grove Public Schools. The proposal, a bond to fund a new high school, is aimed at providing Grove students with the best possible education.
The proposed bond will fund a new high school on 13 acres north of the current high school. In addition, the current high school will be reconfigured to house a junior high for grades 7, 8, and 9, and parking spaces will be added for the Performing Arts Center (PAC). The bond will also fund the construction of a gym and practice facilities for all male and female athletes in grades 7-12.
The growth in enrollment trends, overcrowded classrooms, and unacceptable traffic congestion at the west campuses of Grove Public Schools necessitate the need for investment in the district. This bond proposal provides the resources needed to address these issues and, ultimately, to provide students with the best educational experience.
The bond proposal is part of their ongoing mission to "champion" for Grove's students, staff, education, and community. With this bond, Grove Public Schools can continue to provide safe and secure facilities where all students have the choice to develop to their fullest potential.
Let's make Grove the 'School of Choice'!
