Hearings on Bobb authority in June

DETROIT (AP) — A spokesman for Detroit Public Schools financial manager says Robert Bobb expects to move forward with a plan to sell or lease 42 school buildings beginning in June.

Steve Wasko said Wednesday that Bobb will comply with a judge’s order to consult with the district’s elected school board before implementing his plan.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Wendy Baxter last week ruled to temporarily stop Bobb from making academic plans without consulting the school board. Baxter on Wednesday scheduled hearings in the school board’s lawsuit against Bobb for early June.

The board claims Bobb is overstepping his authority by making academic changes.

Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox this week is expected to appeal Baxter’s temporary injunction to the Michigan Court of Appeals.
