STATE BUDGET-SCHOOLS
(2008-08-07)
(wgvu) -
About 70 smaller, student-friendly high
schools could be created in the state over the next six years under
a proposal partly financed by Michigan's upcoming schools spending
plan.
Governor Granholm has signed the state's school aid budget for
the fiscal year that starts in October.
It includes 15 million dollars for her small schools initiative
aimed at improving high school graduation rates.
Schools will have to come up with matching funds to get the
state money.
The state's K-12 schools budget provides between $56 and $112
more per student.
