BRIGHTON — Facing a $3 million projected deficit for the upcoming school year, Brighton Public Schools decided to contract out the management of its custodial services to Aramark. The district had also been considering contracting out its transportation services, but rejected the idea.

The district only expects to close $1.2 million of the gap and make cuts through the fiscal year if necessary, according to The Detroit News.
