Operating Cash Flow Options for Michigan Public Schools

March 16, 2020

Many Michigan school districts experience periodic operating cash-flow shortfalls during a school year, which often make it necessary for these schools to borrow on a short-term basis to cover the shortfalls.

Michigan law provides several borrowing options for school districts to cover operational cash-flow shortfalls during a school year.

We have prepared a summary of these borrowing options, available here:
