Michigan EAA adopts budget

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Education Achievement Authority of Michigan has adopted a 92.2-million dollar general fund budget.  During their meeting at Wayne County Community College Tuesday, EAA board of directors adopted the 2012-2013 budget.  Officials expect to have more money for the next school year because of an infusion of federal grants.

Due in large part to increased Title-one federal grants, EAA officials say the district will see an overall spending increase of four-percent or about 3.7-million dollars.

The authority was established in 2011 to take over schools performing among the lowest five-percent in the state, including 15 schools that were formerly part of Detroit Public Schools.
