LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Two more Michigan school districts are expected to get money to help transition from the traditional school calendar to a year-round calendar after another district backed out of the effort.

Michigan Department of Education spokesman Bill DiSessa tells MLive.com (https://bit.ly/1r7XUcW ) that Watersmeet Township Public Schools decided not to accept $709,000 because of lack of community support for the plan.

The department now is giving more than $333,000 to Madison School District in Lenawee County and more than $375,000 to the Port Huron Area School District.

Several others previously were announced as getting money. The Muskegon Heights Public School Academy System will get $750,000; charter school GEE Edmonson Academy in Detroit will get $395,000; and Ypsilanti Community Schools will get $146,000.

Two other districts got money under a different program.
