Wednesday is Count Day, when Michigan schools determine funding
MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) 90 percent of funding for Michigans schools is up for grabs on Wednesday.
Wednesday is Count Day for districts across Michigan.
Experts say its an especially important day for school districts that are operating on a budget deficit.
Some districts are even planning giveaways to make sure every student shows up for school.
The results of Count Day will be released later in the year, and while most of the districts funding will be determined on Wednesday, the remaining ten percent will be tallied during a second count in February.
