Another Michigan school district moves a step closer to an emergency manager
Governor Snyder has appointed a team to review the Muskegon Heights School District's financial records. That puts the west Michigan school district a step closer to getting an emergency manager.
The Muskegon Heights school district asked for a state review of its finances back in December.
The preliminary review found the school district was in ‘probable financial stress’, due to the district’s $8.5 million deficit.
That set the stage for the governor to appoint a state review team to scour the school district’s books.
If an emergency manager is eventually appointed in Muskegon Heights schools, it will join school districts in Detroit and Highland Park. Emergency managers are also running things in four Michigan cities.
