The Detroit Public Schools board has approved a plan from a state review team to address the district's financial problems.
The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report the board voted Wednesday on the plan. Board President Carla Scott said the district has to do everything it can to meet the demands in the consent agreement.
The state review team had given the state's largest district until Wednesday to accept the consent agreement or else an emergency manager would be appointed to handle the district's financial mess.
The Michigan Department of Education wants to see "specific and realistic" spending reductions. There has been concern the district's previous plan to eliminate a $400 million deficit lacked specifics.
