Emergency manager "de-activated" at Michigan's Highland Park schools
Update 3:59 p.m.
The governor will ask the Legislature to pass emergency measures by the end of the week to allow Highland Park students and state aid payments to switch to another district or a charter school.
The governor challenged the Highland Park school board to offer its own solution or ask for a hearing this week that could wind up with the governor re-appointing an emergency manager.
Governor Rick Snyder says Highland Park schools emergency manager is being "de-activated" to comply with a court ruling.
A judge ruled last week that a state review team that recommended a takeover violated Michigan's open meetings law.
Snyder says the review will start over with an open meeting and a chance for the public to comment. The governor will announce an interim plan for the district this afternoon.
The governor says the Highland Park school board is now back in charge, but out of money. He says schools could close as soon as Monday without an emergency solution.
