WE ARE NOW EXPANDING TO HELP SERVE YOU BETTER
COMING IN NOVEMBER JEEP EAGLE

Without a renewal of the op-
erating 'tillage, classroom sizes
would balloon from an average
of 23 to as high as 39 in elemen-
tary schools. In the middle and
high schools, class sizes could
jump to as high as 44, Dr.
Gaynor said.

The vote would
renew four mills on
homes.

"The class size averages for
next year are strict move-up
numbers and don't account for
people moving into the district.
I'm not sure, if this millage fails,
how people would move out of
the district because I don't know
who'd buy their houses. The ef-
fect on property values would be
devastating," he said.
Mike Woods, the chairman of
the 5,000-member Citizens for
Walled Lake Schools, said the
group has been working around
the clock to convince district vot-
ers to renew the millage. He
called himself "guardedly opti-
mistic" about its chances of pass-
ing.
"Having been involved in all
three bond proposals, especially
the last one, I don't take any-
thing for granted. But I sense a
groundswell among parents. I
think people understand the
gravity of the situation if it
doesn't pass," he said.
Mr. Woods, whose 8-year-old
son is a student at Glengarry El-
ementary, pointed out that busi-
nesses in the district — which
bear the brunt of the tax — have
multiplied because of the growth
in Walled Lake, West Bloomfield
and Novi.
"There has been tremendous
growth, which has fed business-
es. They'd be adversely affected
if the millage doesn't pass. For
builders, I think you'd see a
screeching halt to their busi-
ness," he said.
Mr. Woods added that the
millage renewal does not repre-
sent a tax increase but a contin-
uation of the status quo. ❑
