Are Schools Failing Budget Tests?

By  | 

The East Lansing School District looks to cut $4.2 million from its bottom line, but its superintendent says their predicament is shared statewide.

East Lansing Superintendent Thomas Giblin says a vast number of states in the U.S. not to mention many districts in Michigan need to cut money from their bottom lines.

While two high profile schools needing to make cuts are East Lansing and Okemos, smaller school districts such as Mason are preparing themselves to do more with less.

One District bucking the trend is Williamston, who may need to hire additional staff in the future to deal with an increase in school enrolment.
