Many school officials might wish they had the kind of problem that Ann Arbor Public Schools now face: What to do with an extra 4.8 million dollars.

The cash windfall grows out of a bookkeeping dispute with the state that began with a 1994 change in the way Michigan finances public education.

A check of state records showed that a mix up in how officials in Washtenaw County's Scio handled school tax receipts led the state to shortchange Ann Arbor schools.

District administrators are leaning toward putting the money in the district's capital needs fund.

That would let them use some money that now goes to capital needs for general operations.
