Ann Arbor-area voters reject merger of schools

ANN ARBOR, Nov. 5, 2014 (AP): Ann Arbor-area voters have rejected a proposal to merge the city's public schools with the Whitmore Lake school district.

The Ann Arbor News reports (http://bit.ly/1x7sGrR ) precincts with voters for Ann Arbor Public Schools had about 57 percent of voters saying no to the proposal. In the Whitmore Lake Public Schools district, more than 70 percent of voters supported the proposed merger.

The measure had to pass in both areas in order for annexation to go forward.

The proposal called for bringing the about 950-student Whitmore Lake district into the 17,000-student Ann Arbor district. Jim Vibbart, the Whitmore Lake school board vice president, says ``all is not lost'' and officials plan to regroup to look at the district's future.

Whitmore Lake faces challenges including declining enrollment and revenue.
