AAPS Begins Prelim Budget Talks

Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education study session (April 25, 2018): Forsythe Middle School, 1655 Newport Rd

Tonight’s study session, beginning at 5:30 PM, begins with a moment of silence for Burns Park Elementary teacher Scott Thompson.

Study sessions allow for the trustees to dig deep into topics. There is no voting involved.

An overview of the AAPS High School African American Humanities course will be given to the trustees. They will also hear an update on the AAPS District Advisory Groups. Advisory Groups are made up of students, staff, parents, and community members.

The board will also hear the preliminary plan for Project Grow Your Own. The project was initially floated by the trustees as a way of increasing homegrown teacher candidates.

In addition to those updates, the trustees will get a first blush preview of the AAPS 2018-19 Budget. It will be presented within the context of both the Federal and State budget.
