New state budget helps Clintondale
CLINTON TOWNSHIP — The Michigan Legislature on Friday passed a bipartisan $76 billion budget for the 2023 fiscal year that includes investing in public education, and other areas.
So what does this meant to students in the Clintondale Community School District?
It means that CCS will receive an increase of $450 in state aid for each FTE. Clintondale will now receive $9,150 per student.
“This Bill was passed last night,” Clintondale Superintendent Rodriguez Broadnax said. “This is absolutely great news for our district and our budget.”
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said the budget invests in every student and classroom, while still protecting public health and public safety, expanding mental health resources, and growing Michigan’s economy and workforce.
According to the Executive Office of the Governor, the $76 billion budget includes $15.2 billion that will go towards a general fund total and $17.5 billion that will go towards a school aid budget. It also makes a $180 million deposit to the Budget Stabilization Fund, bringing Michigan’s rainy day fund to an all-time high of nearly $1.6 billion.
