Operating Millage Restoration Proposal

On August 2, 2022, voters in Bloomfield Hills Schools will be asked to consider a proposal to restore the Non-homestead Operating Millage. 

• Required for Bloomfield Hills Schools to receive full revenue per pupil.

• The majority of families in Bloomfield Hills Schools qualify for the Principal Residence Exemption and will not be affected by the restoration of 2 mills.

• The tax rate for Non Principal Residence Exemption properties (like business and rental property owners) will not increase. For a business with a taxable value of property established at $200,000, the tax cost would be $3,600 ($200,000 x 18 mills ÷ 1,000), the same tax rate applied today.  

• No levy increase, current tax rate (18 mills) since 2000.

PREP Therapy Dogs

Bloomfield Hills Schools received therapy dogs in the 2021-22 school year, with two serving the Lone Pine and West Hills School communities for most of the year. More recently, therapy dogs have joined Bloomfield Hills Middle and East Hills Middle Schools. The value of the therapy dog program extends beyond the single school communities in which they’re placed; a collaboration with the PREP program is one example.

Greetings!

Bowers Academy is located on Bowers School Farm in Bloomfield Hills, where students and staff have the unique opportunity to engage in rigorous experiential learning in an innovative setting. 

With a focus on social-emotional health and community involvement, Bowers Academy supports learners who seek a nontraditional environment as they earn their Bloomfield Hills High School Diploma.
 

As a school community, we commit to the following guiding viewpoints:

  • We believe that high quality academic instruction is essential for the growth and development of all learners.  At Bowers, we learn collaboratively utilizing a responsive, flexible, and experiential curriculum. 

  • We believe that relationships are at the core of a healthy school community.  At Bowers, we focus on restorative approaches to behavior and support recognizing that all people bring unique circumstances and strengths with them.  

  • We believe that social emotional learning is critically important for the long term success of all students.  At the center of the Bowers experience is a research-based social-emotional curriculum.  Social emotional supports and community building are emphasized in each facet of the learning experience.

  • We believe in the power of place.  At Bowers, we emphasize connection to place and engage in experiential learning that includes exploration of farm, community, and self.

  • We believe that our students can best realize their strengths, interests, and independence when they are immersed in experiential learning both on and off campus.  At Bowers we work to develop strong partnerships to provide students with a variety of experiences to prepare them for their future.
