HIGHLAND PARK, Mich., (WXYZ) - Governor Snyder's office confirms a financial review team has recommended an emergency manager for Highland Park Schools.
The ten member review team issued a financial report on Highland Park Schools to the governor's office Tuesday saying the district is in a current state of financial emergency with no plans to address the situation.
The review team cited the following conditions that led to the unanimous determination:
“The thorough review completed by the Financial Review Team clearly shows that HPS is facing monumental financial challenges,” said State Treasurer Andy Dillon. “The looming threat of missed payments necessitates that action be taken immediately to ensure the students of Highland Park continue to receive a quality education.”
Governor Snyder will have ten days review the report and make a decision as to whether or not an emergency manager is necessary. After that ten day period the district has seven days to request a hearing.
“The Highland Park school district is in a financial free-fall and we must do everything we can to protect the students and educators from feeling the brunt of the impact,” said state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mike Flanagan. “The quality education of the Highland Park students is our top priority.”
