CHEERS - To a step in unison. The boards of education in Mayfield and Northville unanimously agreed to send a proposal for the merger of the two school districts to voters for a "straw vote." The September vote will determine whether the proposal should go to a binding public vote in October. The districts are on the road to ensuring they succeed together. We continue to urge voters to educate themselves so they are informed when they go to the polls. They shouldn't base their vote on emotions. These two districts, along with the community, have the opportunity to prove local districts can work together. The board members and administrators of each district have done a thorough job. They are ready to answer any and all questions; don't hesitate to ask.
