Brighton School Board Approves Property Transfer With Hartland
September 26, 2017
At its meeting Monday night, the Brighton Board of Education approved a resolution which would allow the transfer of parcels between the Brighton Area School District and the Hartland Consolidated Schools. The property is located in the Deer Creek #2 subdivision west of Old US-23 and south of Hyne Road in Brighton Township.
The approval, in the form of a request to the Livingston Educational Service Agency, is to resolve the matter of which parcels in the subdivision should be in a particular school district. Under the agreement, parcel #4, which is currently within the Brighton Area School District, would be transferred to the Hartland Consolidated Schools. The reason is that parcels #1-3 are in the Hartland School District and are contiguous lots accessible by road. Also under the agreement, those portions of parcels 5 and 6 which are currently in the Hartland School District would be transferred to the Brighton Area Schools. The reasoning is that the road accessible portions of those parcels are within the Brighton Area School District’s boundaries.
The Hartland Board of Education has already approved the transfer. But to become legally effective, it must be approved by LESA, which is the county’s intermediate school district. (TT)
