Construction continues at the future home of the new Tecumseh Early Childhood Center, where rooms and features are starting to take shape.

On Aug. 23, 2016 voters in Tecumseh passed a $12.4 million school bond issue. The measure passed with 65.68 percent of the vote.

Partial funds from the $12.4 million bond will cover the construction of the childhood center. For every $100 paid in property taxes last year, it will cost residents an additional $12.91 for the year.

Once completed, the building will include a safe room large enough to accommodate the students and staff.
