Court Rules School Emergency Managers In Charge During Financial Emergency

(WLNS) – The Michigan Court of Appeals says emergency managers running school districts have the power to fill vacancies on a school board.

The court ruled Wednesday in the case of Jonathan Kinloch, who was appointed to the Detroit School Board in 2013 by emergency manager Roy Roberts.

Kinloch says he got the “cold shoulder” at his first meeting when other board members refused to acknowledge him.

But the appeals court says a school board can’t ignore the appointments of an emergency manager, during a financial emergency.
