Emergency manager's plan for Detroit schools includes better programs, stabilizing cash flow


DETROIT — The state-appointed emergency manager for Detroit's public schools says improving programs to better educate students and stabilizing cash flow are among 10 areas he will focus on.

Darnell Earley says his management plan released Tuesday will guide district restructuring efforts over the next 17 months.

He also delivered a required 45-day financial and operating plan to the state.

Earley was appointed in January by Gov. Rick Snyder and is the Detroit Public Schools' fourth emergency manager since 2009. He says the district should be poised to exit state receivership by the end of his 18-month tenure.

The district faces a $170 million deficit. Sliding enrollment has contributed to the money troubles. About 47,000 fulltime students were enrolled last fall. About 104,000 students were in the district in 2007.
