The Benton Harbor School Board voted last night to create an advisory board that would make plans to turn the district around.

The board voted unanimously to create the committee. The Michigan Department of Treasury presented the idea at a meeting on August 16th. This is the plan proposed by the state after its initial plan to close the district’s high school met with staunch opposition in the community.

The Benton Harbor Area School Board has put up an online survey for people to weigh in on a state plan that proposes major changes for the district.

The online survey asks parents, district staff and community members to voice their opinion on the Michigan Department of Treasury’s plan.
