(Detroit Free Press)- Changes under way in Detroit Public Schools means the state's largest school district will be about a third the size it was a decade ago, when it had more than 160,000 students. And the district no longer will operate a comprehensive high school in more than half of the geographic area of the city.
DPS also will have to start spending a staggering 14% of its state aid not on students, but on debt payments.
The district released on Wednesday its enrollment projections within a proposed balanced budget for the 2012-13 school year. A public budget hearing will take place next week. All districts in the state must adopt a budget by June 30.
