(WXYZ) - The first day of school means big changes for students from the now dissolved Inkster Public School system.
The state dissolved the district earlier this summer for financial reasons, sending parents scrambling to find a new school for their children. Tuesday will be the first day students report to their new school.
"It's been kind of a whirlwind," says Paula Daniels, Superintendent for Romulus Community Schools. Romulus registered 200 of the Inkster students for the new year in their elementary, middle and high schools.
Students entering their senior year of high school will spend their last year split up from their friends.
"You spend three years at a particular school and you anticipate coming into your senior year with all of your friends and now this happened," says Hal Heard, Principal at Romulus High School.
"We want to make sure that those students are taken care of and that their post-secondary plans are as well and make sure they have a great senior year," Heard continued.
All of the Romulus Schools have a planned program or event to help students with the transition. Romulus is one of four district choices given to Inkster parents.
Romulus Schools also hired some of the teaching staff and other employees who were laid off from the disolved district.
