Michigan schools will finalize their budgets today but without knowing how much money they’ll have to work with. Cheyna Roth reports.
It’s the start of the new fiscal year for school districts, and that means that schools in Michigan need to know now how much money they are going to use throughout the year. But lawmakers in Lansing have yet to give them a clear picture of what they can expect their budgets to be.
“It gets ironed out, and school boards have to go back and change budgets. I admit that it could be a problem for some, it’s just not the end of the world. And they may end up having to make educated guesses.”
