Ypsi and Willow Run School Districts Consider Combining

YPSILANTI (AP) – Two southeastern Michigan school systems could soon turn into one under a proposal that could go before voters in the Ypsilanti and Willow Run school districts.

It’s the largest proposed consolidation so far in the wake of Michigan education funding cuts and Gov. Rick Snyder’s program of financial incentives for local units of government that share services.

Snyder has proposed setting aside $10 million to help with transition costs for districts to consolidate services or operations.
