      Gov. Granholm appoints Detroit Public Schools transition team


      January 29, 2005


      Gov. Jennifer Granholm appointed a Detroit Public Schools transition
      team to give community input and help ease the switch from the state
      takeover and appointed school board to an elected school board. The 148
      team members will seek an independent audit and will serve on one of
      nine committees: Finance, Governance, Human Resources,
      Curriculum/Education Quality, Community/Parental Partnering, Futuring
      (looking ahead), Legal, Information Technology and a steering committee.

      Led by Rev. Wendell Anthony, president of the Detroit Branch NAACP, the
      team is comprised of parents, educators, business and church officials,
      politicians, former elected school board members, activists who have
      protested the state takeover and people who were on opposite sides of
      the controversial Proposal E issue. To reach the transition team or give
      input, call (313) 870-3622, or exts. 3623, 3624, 3625 or email,
