LANSING, Mich. (AP) — After 15 hours of mostly private meetings, the Michigan House has approved a $500 million restructuring plan for the ailing Detroit Public Schools.

House lawmakers started the session Wednesday and emerged from a series of private caucus meetings to approve a plan early today to make sure teachers are paid and the district pays off debt.

 

The plan doesn't include a commission that would have the authority to approve which schools open and close in the city. That had been a key part of the Senate plan which passed previously and a major reason why Democrats voted against the package.

 

Teachers held a two-day sickout this week after learning that the district wouldn't be able to pay them this summer without emergency funding from the state.
