Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education study session (April 27, 2016): W. Scott Westerman Preschool and Family Center

Tonight’s study session, beginning at 5:30 PM, focuses on the FY 2016-17 AAPS budget. Budget talks begin on the heels of yesterday’s  approval of education budgets in the state’s House of Representatives.

Study sessions allow the trustees to explore a topic more in depth than is usually allowed for at a regular meeting. After the study session, the trustees will move into a regular meeting, scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM.

Superintendent Jeanice Swift will report out on her recent trip to China.
