generic Muskegon Heights High School

MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WOOD) — The troubled Muskegon Heights school district will be able to keep its current superintendent, while receiving help from two other organizations starting next year.

24 Hour News 8 was able to obtain the contracts which offer some insight into how Muskegon Heights Public Schools will be run.

The Muskegon Area Intermediate School District will provide financial services for the district, while Lansing-based Advance Educational Services will do human resources for the district. The district will also keep their current superintendent.

Each contract runs for three years.

The agreements each allow for either side to terminate the contract if either is not doing their job.

The superintendent’s contract also has provisions written in including that she only receives certain things if the district enrollment is at least 900 kids.

Muskegon Heights schools cancelled their agreement with private for-profit company Mosaica Education Inc. earlier this year.
