Benton Harbor Area Schools in financial emergency

LANSING (WKZO) -- Benton Harbor Area Schools are a step closer to a possible emergency manager, as an independent review team is telling Governor Rick Snyder the district is in a financial emergency. The governor now has ten days from Friday to consider the report and come up with the plan to restore the district to financial solvency.

School board members have voiced their support for a consent agreement with the state instead of an emergency manager, as the city of Benton Harbor was under the control of a state-appointed EM from April 2010 until this spring.
