Flint Community Schools could be eligible for almost $400,000 after deciding to participate in the Michigan Department of Education Best Practices Incentive.

According to MLive, if Flint Community Schools meet seven of the eight criteria outline by the State School Aid Act, the district could receive an additional $52 per student. With just over 7,200 students that amounts to just over $378,000.

Some of the criteria the district must meet includes: having a policy on medical benefit plans, accepting applications for enrollment of non-resident pupils, allowing students to receive post-secondary credit during secondary school and offering online learning opportunities.

More information on the Best Practice Incentive can be found on the Michigan Department of Education website.
