The Detroit Public Schools are hosting an online auction of old equipment and vehicles tomorrow. There will be a pre-auction inspection today to allow customers to look at the equipment before purchase.

Spokesperson Jennifer Mrozowski says the money raised will go back into the schools.

"This is money that would go back to our general fund so it could go it could go for all sorts of things just to help pay for our expenses. And overtime we had a number of these auctions of all sorts of things, even once auctioning off a surplus jet believe it or not."

Mrozowski says the school district has raised almost 500 thousand dollars through auctions.
