HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. — Jack Martin, Highland Park’s emergency manager, has no plans to close the district or merge it into Detroit Public Schools anytime soon, according to MLive.
"We fully expect there to be a school district in Highland Park next year," Martin told MLive after meeting with the financial review team for the city of Detroit.
MLive reports Martin is currently focusing on ways to improve the district’s curriculum while also exploring options to “create opportunities” for district students who have dropped out of school.
