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.

Visible Thinking and Sustainability

At Eastover, we aim to educate the whole child.

Character traits are continually reinforced through our Positive Behavior Support program. Our Visible Thinking initiative provides a culture of thinking that fosters creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. Students are given opportunities throughout the year to make a positive impact at home, in the community, and beyond, through our school sustainability initiative.
