INKSTER, Mich. Back-to-school shopping has taken on a whole new meaning for former students of the now-defunct Inkster school district.

More than 900 children were displaced after state education officials dissolved the insolvent Inkster Public Schools last month.

As a result, every Inkster student was assigned to one of four neighboring districts - Taylor, Romulus, Wayne-Westland or Westwood Community Schools.

The Detroit News says that in response, some districts are adding staff. Others are waiting until they see additional children in seats the first week of school.

Families have the option of picking a school in another district under the School of Choice program, if the other district agrees and has space.

Stephanie Bradshaw's family is trying to find the best fit for their ninth-grade daughter and fourth-grade son.
