New School Year - New School District
Tomorrow marks the beginning of the school year for tens of thousands of Michigan school children.
For many kids, the year is starting in a different school district then they attended last year.
About a thousand Inkster children will be attending classes this fall in four different Wayne County school districts. The state dissolved the Inkster public school district over the summer because of the district’s chronic financial problems.
The same thing happened to the Buena Vista school district. The bulk of its students will take classes in Saginaw classrooms.
Money has also been a problem in Albion. But school district officials there took a different approach. They decided to close their high school and focus on K through 8.
Albion public school students who are high school age will attend classes in Marshall.
