About this grant

During the course of several decades of declining enrollment in the Flint Community Schools, budget adjustments have been made, but there has been no formal evaluation of the personnel, support services, administration, and noninstructional service needs of the school district. The grantee will contract with Plante & Moran, which specializes in working with school districts on issues such as this, to evaluate the organizational structure and operations of the school district and identify cost reduction or containment opportunities, including staffing levels at its central office and schools; building utilization; utility costs; transportation, custodial, and food service operations; compensation, including salary and benefits; and outsourcing. Recommendations from the study will be shared with the Flint Board of Education, the community, and the Foundation.
