School districts across Michigan have bond proposals going to a vote on May 7.
Ludington Area Schools district is asking the community for a new elementary building, renovations to the middle and high school and improvements to technology, transportation, arts and athletic facilities.
District Superintendent Jason Kennedy says the district needs signficant renovations.
"The average age of the facilities in Ludington is 64 years old," Kennedy says. "We need to consider doing more than just fixing and repairing the facilities."
Benzie, Kingsley and Frankfort are a few other school districts in northern Michigan that have bond proposals on the ballot next week.
