That's when Scott Menzel steps down from that position - a transition that was part of the plan when the Ypsilanti and Willow Run school districts merged. 

Menzel says the school year isn't over, but he thinks Ypsilanti Community Schools is in pretty good shape.

"Financially we're going to end on the right side of the ledge," Menzel says. "We still have a number of issues to deal with and there's a tremendous amount of work to do, but we've said all along that the vision the community outlined was a three to five year process."

Menzel says it'll be up to the Ypsilanti Community Schools Board of Education to decide whether to elevate Associate Superintendent Laura Lisiscki to the Superintendent's job. 

Lisiscki has been handling the day-to-day operation of the district. 

Menzel has been serving as Superintendent of both Ypsilanti Community Schools and the Washtenaw Intermediate School District.
