LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The finances of the school district for the impoverished Detroit enclave of Highland Park are getting a more in-depth review by the state this month.
Gov. Rick Snyder on Thursday announced the appointment of a 10-member financial review team. The review was requested after a preliminary review by the Michigan Department of Education announced in August found "probable financial stress."
The team is expected to report its findings within 30 days whether there's a financial emergency. The process could lead to the state appointing an emergency manager.
Robert Davis, secretary of the School District of the City of Highland Park's board, told the Detroit Free Press that district staff will assist.
Michigan has emergency managers in place in the Detroit public school system and three cities.
