Gov. Rick Snyder has turned the job of rewriting Michigan's 1979 school aid act over to the Oxford Foundation-Michigan.

The group plans to hold its first hearing at 10 a.m. Tuesday in downtown Lansing.

Coordinator Richard McLellan says the Republican governor wants an updated law that reflects the Any Time, Any Place, Any Way, Any Pace public school learning model he supports. The law is rewritten each year with the school aid budget.

McLellan says the effort won't affect school funding.

He says as many as 90 people will attend the initial hearing. A draft is expected to be completed in October and the final draft given to Snyder in late fall as he prepares his 2013 budget.

The group has a page on Facebook.
