The Flint Board of Education has signed off on a deficit elimination plan for the district.
The challenge now is sticking to it.
The Flint school district is $15.8 million dollars in the red.
To address that, school board members last night approved a plan that will cut jobs, close two elementary schools and trim other expenses. The goal is to reduce the district deficit to zero by June, 2016.
Antoinette Lockett is the board president. She says retaining students will be key.
