The Lansing School Board has approved its 2021 budget. The district’s $160 million plan is about $10 million less than last year. The cuts come as the state struggles to craft its own budget in the face of an unprecedented economic blow dealt by the coronavirus pandemic. School districts across the state are putting numbers to paper with no clear sense of how much they’ll receive in state aid. WKAR's Kevin Lavery spoke with Superintendent Sam Sinicropi about what it all means for Lansing.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed the next state budget Monday hours before the deadline to fund government, while using line-item vetoes to block nearly $1 billion in spending proposed by the Republican-led Legislature.
