State officials rule against need for Hazel Park schools Emergency Manager

LANSING (WKZO) -- Hazel Parks Schools will not have an emergency manager overseeing the districts finances.

State officials in Lansing say after a careful evaluation, the district does have an increasing debt, but they are up to date on payments to vendors and pension fund.  The review team that examined the school district's financial health found Hazel Park's debt went from 1.5-million to 3.3-million dollars this year.

State officials are also concerned about declining enrollment in the district which currently has around four-thousand students.  However, state officials say Hazel Park's situation does not meet the criteria for an emergency manager.
