The proposed amendment to Section 101(10) of the State School Aid Act was enacted effective October 1, 2019 and now allows school districts to count qualifying teacher professional development towards pupil instructional time. Accordingly, we can now confirm that the alternate calendar that was previously shared is now approved and finalized.
Anchor Bay has a non-homestead millage restoration on the November 5th ballot. This two-mill restoration will allow the district to restore the 18 mills levied on non-homestead properties and hedge against future Headlee rollbacks through 2024.
