BAY CITY ACADEMY: Is It Finally Time For The Fork? Enrollment Freefall Continues; Fall 2016 Deficit Plan Projected 425 Students, November Count 346.

Sinking like a poorly-made popover, the Bay City Academy's official student count just keeps collapsing.

As I reported on November 15, the Bay City Academy's October 2016 Michigan State Aid payment was based on 398 students, preliminary headcount data collected by the Bay City Academy during the week of September 12, 2016 and reported to the State of Michigan on September 23, 2016. 

However, November's payment data (click on image below) confirms the precarious state of charter school founded and currently owned by Steven Ingersoll: it's based on 346 students at the foreclosure-plagued school.

In its approved deficit plan, Mitten Educational Management projected $3,578,417 revenue for the Bay City Academy's 2016/17 school year, but the current year calculation is now $2,800,440 — a drop of nearly 22 percent.


  1. Brian Lynch will have day in front of the Lord Jesus! Only ones who are holy and walk with Christ can see how Brian Lynch doesn't. His ass will go down in hell and Jesus will not allow it back up!..

    Mr. Lynch day will be known as the day Satan ran school into ground because of sin & greed. Only coming to Jesus will save BCA now. It's time to give the money you stole back Brian lynch! Repent!

  2. I think what irks me the most is that no one in the Michigan Department of Education or senators and congressmen will even do anything about this. They just pretend like everything is just hunky dorey. And here is a man that admitted on the witness stand how he took millions of dollars from the Grand Traverse Academy and no one is stopping this. HEY MICHIGANDERS do you realize they are still doing the same thing here in Bay City. What a scam, it tells you none of them care about children. Do any of you really think the people overlooking education in our State care. Absolutely not. They want charters to win over traditional public schools, because they can steal tax payers money. EASY money from the government, white collar welfare, charter cheaters; whatever you want to call it, it's a racket. I would think the people in traditional public schools would do something about this, instead of sitting on their butts. Because here comes DeVos and you know what havoc she is going to reek on education. She is going to open the door to corruption and instead of helping children she will be helping her friends make money off the government. Get it together people plug the loopholes now, before we loose our schools all together.
