On April 29, 2021, the School Board approved a name for the new district facility at M-58 Highway and Foxridge Drive. It will now be called the Ray-Pec LEAD Center.
LEAD stands for Learning, Experiences, And Discovery.
In February 2021, the District purchased the building, which had been vacant for several years.
The District plans to use the Ray-Pec LEAD Center, which has about 41,000 square feet, to provide additional opportunities for students in the area of career oriented education and Real World Learning education experiences. Renovation of the facility and implementation of career education programs will be funded through proceeds from Proposition S, the $72 million bond issue approved by voters in April 2021.
Career education is an important component of Proposition S. Some of the programs being considered for the LEAD Center include HVAC, electrical, and technology certifications.
Also during the April 29, 2021, meeting, the School Board approved a go-to-market resolution authorizing the district to offer for public sale the general obligation bonds in the approximate amount of $72 million.
