The Ann Arbor School Board has taken steps towards completing next year's budget, but chose not to vote on the plan Wednesday night.  The delay is designed to give more time to adjust spending based on the state's new K-12 funding model.  

President Deb Mexicotte says negotiations with the teachers haven't yet led to a salary freeze so the district provided notice to the union what will happen if an agreement can't be reached.  If a deal isn't reached by June 23rd the teachers contract will be terminated at the end of the month.

The board also approved plans to save $2 million annually by outsourcing custodial services. Current custodians will be get interviews with GCA Services to continue their work.

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.
