GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. –   The public is invited to a hearing Monday, to give their input on next year’s budget for the Grand Rapids Public School District.

The board of education is welcoming comments starting at 5:30 p.m. at the board chambers.

The district has recently gone through a major transformation plan, and there have been reports that the district will lose 700 students in the fall because of 10 more schools being closed.

After Monday’s public comment, the board will meet to discuss next year’s budget further.
