Ben Mainka led Swartz Creek Community Schools for the past six years, a district with about 3,600 students, roughly 2,000 fewer than Novi. The student population is also less diverse and more economically disadvantaged than Novi.

“A big difference is the level of opportunities provided to students,” Mainka said. “The resources and access to them that kids have is higher in Novi. But where I am coming from, families and the community are very supportive of schools. We were able to do a lot of great things as a community, including passing bonds and improving financial stability, and the relationships and culture within the district is something we made great improvements upon.”
