BENTON HARBOR, Mich.--- The Benton Harbor School District is taking another look at its finances.
That's after the State of Michigan said the district has not made enough progress eliminating a $15.5 million deficit.
According to our reporting partners at the Herald Palladium, Benton Harbor Schools wanted to pay off the debt by 2028, but the state wanted the debt paid off by 2016.
Benton Harbor Schools have until tomorrow to respond, and if that plan is not approved state takeover is likely.
Still, Benton Harbor Superintendent Leonard Seawood says the district is making progress.
