Allegan Area ESA Headlee Restoration Passes

The three Headlee Restoration proposals asked for by the Allegan Area Educational Service Agency (AAESA) have each passed. The passage of the three proposals will generate $301,000 annually to support students in Allegan County.

Proposal I for the General Fund, also known as Operating Millage, supports local districts in Allegan County with AAESA consultants in math, science, and literacy.

Proposal II for Special Education provides funds that flow to local school districts to assist in offsetting the district’s state mandated, unreimbursed special education costs.

Proposal III for Career and Technical Education supports the programs AAESA offers to at no charge to local districts, like the Allegan Tech Center.

“We want to thank the taxpayers of Allegan County for recognizing the importance of these proposals and what they will mean to the education of our students,” said AAESA Superintendent William Brown.

AAESA serves the local school districts of Allegan, Fennville, Glenn, Hopkins, Martin, Otsego, Plainwell, and Wayland, as well as Innocademy and Outlook Academy.
