A message from the superintendent
Dear parents and community members:

It is with great enthusiasm and appreciation that we announce the passing of the Kentwood Public Schools Bond request. Our community has considered this opportunity with a great deal of care and interest, and has responded in support of our students, families and the broader community as partners in supporting excellence in education.

Kentwood has always been a district built on fiscal responsibility, demonstrating prudent management of public funds. We are committed to continue to exercise this same responsibility with the funds generated by this proposal. This community decision will allow us to address our district’s needs in safety, technology and operational efficiency for years to come. Kentwood Public Schools values the partnership that’s been built with the community and respects their financial support. Together, we will continue to do great things.

The Kentwood Public Schools remains committed to providing an education of excellence to every child that we serve. Each teacher and staff member at KPS seeks to partner with our families to ensure that positive relationships are developing within the school environment and that high expectations are reflected in the arts, athletics, and within each of our academic programs.

Thank you all so much for your continued support of our schools and community.

Michael Zoerhoff
Superintendent Kentwood Public Schools
