On November 15, 2016 the Hamtramck Board of Education adopted State Superintendent Brian Whiston’s November 14, 2016 statement regarding incidents of harassing, bullying, intimidation and hateful speech since the Presidential election on November 8, 2016.
Hamtramck Public Schools is committed to provide a safe school environment that ensures both the physical and emotional safety of all students and staff creating the conditions necessary to foster academic achievement.
The following section of Mr. Whiston’s Statement clearly reflects our beliefs:
We need to cultivate and develop in our students a steadfast respect for all others, inclusive of race, religion, orientation, or social-economic standing. We must not let political rhetoric and actions diminish the positive learning environments we’ve worked so hard to nourish.

Thanks Hamtramck voters for approving the Wayne County Education Enhancement Millage.
The funding can be used by every public school district in Wayne County as that district sees fit. Each district in Wayne County receives an amount based on that community’s total taxable value and is distributed on a per pupil basis. Hamtramck Public Schools is looking to bolster English Language Learners programming and staffing, expand facilities at the Kosciuszko campus and repair and improve facilities throughout Hamtramck Public Schools with the money generated by the enhancement millage. Along with the Board of Education and the entire HPS staff, I’m very appreciative of the support given by the voters of the city of Hamtramck not only for the enhancement millage but also for supporting the sinking fund millage, the non-homestead millage and the recreation millage. The entire “HPS family” is team with every team member working together to support public school education from PreK through grade 12 as well as Adult Education and recreation programming.
