Bloomfield Hills School District (BHSD) is a school district in the Greater Detroit area of the U.S. state of Michigan, with its headquarters in Bloomfield Township in Oakland County.[2][3] In addition to portions of Bloomfield Township the district also serves most of the city of Bloomfield Hills and portions of West Bloomfield Township.[4] It was founded in the 1950s. BHSD has ranked among the best school systems in Michigan multiple times.[citation needed]

History[edit]

Around 2005 the district had a $3 million surplus. It had plans to increase enrollment by allowing out of district students to attend the district schools, so it would get increased state funding due to higher enrollment. In a two-year period ending in 2009, the district lost over 250 students and therefore about $3 million in state funding. Because of the decreased revenues, the district planned to close two schools. In a school funding system enacted in 1994, Michigan school funding entirely originates from the state, so despite the fact that Bloomfield Hills has a property rich tax base, the decrease in enrollment forced the district into an operating loss.[5]
