Ann Arbor Schools Could See Direct And Indirect Growth In Students With Annexation Plan

Ann Arbor Public Schools

Ann Arbor Public Schools could gain more than just Whitmore Lake's approximately 1,000 students if annexation plans move forward.  That's because Whitmore Lake Public Schools currently accepts schools of choice students from Livingston County.  

They would become eligible to attend school in Ann Arbor if the district's boundaries expand.  School Board President Deb Mexicotte says so far annexation discussions have been very positive.  She says they want to develop a real partnership that will benefit both communities.

Mexicotte says a joint committee of board members and administrators from both district still has a lot of questions to answer.  Issues include taxation, governance, and state support.

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.
