Are other districts cutting staff?
Many school districts in Michigan are right-sizing due to student enrollment projections from their longitudinal data collections. The State of Michigan’s demographer projects a significant decrease in the number of school-age children in Michigan. Michigan’s K-12 school-age population will decrease by more than 100,000 by 2024. It is projected that Michigan will not see population similar to our current 2018 level of 1.54 million until 2040.
