Consolidating school districts in michigan

On Friday, May 3, teachers were handed envelopes informing them whether or not they would be offered positions with the new consolidated district, Ypsilanti Community Schools (YCS), in the fall.

One example is a 1999 study of Utah public school districts by Kalyan Chakraborty, Basudeb Biswas, and W.

Not surprisingly, thousands of Ypsilanti students have been enrolled in the numerous for-profit charter academies that have sprung up in the city, or have transferred to neighboring districts.

On Monday, Republican Governor Rick Snyder and President Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan made an appearance at Ypsilanti’s citywide Kindergarten to showcase education “reform.” The visit was carefully managed to exclude the public as well as teachers, parents, and students who might express outrage over the attack on their schools.

The national count of school districts stood at 14,559 in the 2001-2002 school year (see Graphic 1). The fact that earlier study results have not been consistent across states points to the need to gather and analyze state-specific data before embarking on a policy of school district consolidation.
