Inkster Public School Teachers Laid Off, Superintendent Reportedly Resigns

INKSTER (WWJ) – Inskter Public Schools are apparently without a superintendent Wednesday morning, and the district’s teachers may soon be out of a job as well.

Superintendent Micha Bashir reportedly resigned at a school board meeting Tuesday night. According to sources, Bashir went to the meeting to turn in a resignation letter, but it wasn’t accepted. Bashir allegedly wouldn’t take no for an answer and said she quit anyway before walking out of the meeting.

Additionally, a school board official told WWJ’s Mike Campbell all of the district’s public school teachers are laid off effective June 28, and their insurance will end August 30.

The board member said the layoffs are part of the deficit elimination plan that the district has filed with the state, and it’s possible that some of the teachers could be rehired for the start of the school year.

She said the deficit elimination plan calls for the district to change from K-12 to a K-8 system with a charter school running the high school. The plan has not yet been accepted by the state.
