Today on Current State: A breakdown of both state party conventions; sports with the Detroit Free Press' Joe Rexrode; a look at shifting enrollment trends at Michigan universities; East Lansing schools seek tech upgrades; and MLive's Angela Wittrock sorts out the Lansing metro's "real" GDP.
Tomorrow, East Lansing voters will decide on a school bond issue to upgrade outdated equipment. Officials say hundreds of phones, computers, cameras and clocks in the city’s schools are becoming obsolete. The district is asking residents to approve a millage that would not exceed 1.26 mils over the next five years. The measure would raise more than $5 million for the upgrade.
WKAR’s Kevin Lavery visited East Lansing High School to talk with the district’s director of technology, Christian Palasty, who says there’s a sizable amount of equipment to replace.
