PPEL Projects

In February 2015, 80% of district residents voted to pass the Physical Plant & Equipment Levy (PPEL). The PPEL plan focuses on remodeling existing buildings and completing projects at UMS and UHS. If the 2018 Bond Referendum fails, the current PPEL plan will eventually be completed, but over a much longer time and with less than desired outcomes in terms of providing 21st century learning spaces and opportunities for students throughout the district.
