courtesy Flint Schools

Officials at the Michigan Department of Education have approved the Flint School District’s plan to erase an almost $16 million deficit over the next three years.

According to MLive, the district’s plan was submitted to the state on Tuesday. Flint Schools Assistant Chief Financial Officer Jawun Nelson has said that “state aid funding is not in jeopardy” either.

The state mandated plan will now need approval from the board of education during its next meeting on May 15th.

In the plan are previously announced school closures, layoffs to 31 teachers over three years, and completely cutting utilities to vacant buildings still owned by the district.
