Protecting the School Aid Fund

April 13, 2015

Dear Forest Hills Families,

This letter is the second of three letters to Forest Hills families regarding the important issue of funding for Michigan’s schools.  Thank you for your response to my first letter regarding School Aid Fund dollars being used to cover items that previously were supported by the state’s general purpose fund known as the General Fund.  Unfortunately, state leaders did indeed enact a mid-year budgetary change that will result in the School Aid Fund having $250 million less in it at the end of the fiscal year than if they had left the money alone.  Many people expressed the common concern that this money was being used for things other than support of Michigan’s public schools.  The purpose of this letter is to explain how the upcoming May 5, 2015, ballot proposal known as “Proposal 1” would address the issue of allowable uses of School Aid Fund dollars.
