Detroit's state-administered public school system has released a $784 million budget plan that cuts spending by 25 percent as 15 of its schools shift to a new authority created to increase student achievement.
Michigan put emergency manager Roy Roberts in charge of the Detroit Public Schools because of persistent budget deficits run up by the district's elected board of education.
The district said Wednesday that it expects a $11.9 million surplus for the 2011-12 budget year that's about to end.
The district says it's projecting an enrollment of 51,927 in 2012-13. That number excludes the estimated 11,020 students in the 15 schools that are coming under the state's new Education Achievement Authority.
There's a public hearing on the budget June 27 at Renaissance High School.
