Flanagan Approves Plan For Pontiac School District To Avoid Payless Payday

PONTIAC (WWJ) – It appears that a payless payday for teachers in one Oakland County school district has been averted.

On Saturday, Michigan Superintendent of Public Instruction, Mike Flanagan tweeted that he has approved a deficit elimination plan for the Pontiac school district.

The plan will allow for the district to receive withheld funds and continue to operate in Pontiac.

Teachers and other staff in the Pontiac School District are met Friday night to address the fact that they’ve been told they may not get paychecks next week.

Teacher’s aide Fred McFadden tells WWJ’s Jon Hewett he was not pleased:

“It is unfair for us to sit here and take no pay . Is it our fault that you continue to hire people to steal from you? We have hired superintendents, and I , I hope they’re watching me, & walked into this district and stole and they have not been fully charged yet, but guess who’s paying the price ..the staff as well as our students,” said McFadden.
