Ann Arbor School Board Holding Public Hearing On Budget

Ann Arbor Public Schools

Ann Arbor Public Schools welcomes the community to comment on their budget Wednesday night.

The board will get the first briefing on the $182 million general fund budget.  It addresses a projected shortfall of nearly $11.5 million .  

Over half of that amount is reached by a compensation freeze and savings from replacing retiring teachers with new hires.  The board will also vote on outsourcing custodial work.  That move will save an additional $1.8 million.

The budget proposal can be found here.

Like many, I first came to this area when I started school at the University of Michigan, then fell in love with the community and haven’t left. After graduating from U of M in the mid 1990’s I interned at WDET for several years, while also working a variety of jobs in Ann Arbor. Then in 1999 I joined the WEMU news team.
