Michigan schools count students Wednesday

St. Joseph, Mich. Empty desks Wednesday could mean empty wallets in the future for school districts across Michigan.

It's “National Count Day" for public schools.

This means Wednesday’s attendance determines how much money school districts will get from the state.

Each student at St. Joseph public schools is worth around $7,200.

Administrators there say a few absent kids could be the difference between a deficit and surplus for their budgets.

To ensure full classrooms, St. Joseph schools sent out letters and posted a reminder on Facebook.
