Building and Site Sinking Fund



Lake Orion Community Schools would like to thank the voters in Orion Township and other communities in the area where students attend our schools for approving the Building and Site Sinking Fund last August.  A dedicated source of funding is needed for long-term facility repairs, renovations and replacement projects.

This work will help provide the district’s 7,600 students, staff members and community with safe and functional educational facilities.  The 2 mill sinking fund will generate approximately $3.5 million annually for ten years. 

About one-third of the State's public school districts currently have a sinking fund in place to address their facility needs, including 12 of 28 districts in Oakland County.



There currently are more than $40 million in facility projects proposed for Lake Orion schools.  The building and site sinking fund will enable improvements to every building in the district.  The types of major facility renovation and repair projects include boiler and chiller replacement, roof repairs, restroom upgrades, parking lot and sidewalk repairs, carpeting and floor tile replacement, lighting system upgrades, energy management system updates, network infrastructure improvements, eligible security system upgrades, window and door replacement and more.
