Gov. Granholm rescinds cut to school aid in December
School districts will get a Christmas gift from the state: a $127 per pupil cut in state aid won't occur - at least for December, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Gov. Jennifer Granholm rescinded the aid cut she ordered last month because the School Aid Fund has at least $150 million more than was expected, the Free Press said.
But the aid cut might take place in January.
And school districts will still absorb a $165 per pupil reduction in state aid as part of the new, 2009-10 budget. Also, 39 school districts with higher property values will still have to absorb additional cuts, some as much as $600 per pupil, which Granholm imposed as part of budget-cutting, the Free Press said.
