Transparency Reporting

Michigan Compiled Law, MCL 388.1618(2), requires school districts and intermediate school districts to post certain budget and financial information on the district's website within 30 days after a board adopts its annual operating budget or any subsequent revision to that budget. The Budget and Salary/Compensation Transparency Reporting is an opportunity to communicate to our community how we utilize the resources that are provided to us.

Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has published guidelines for MCL 388.1618(2) Budget and Salary/Compensation Transparency Reporting.

The following are the required components of MCL 388.1618(2) Budget and Salary/Compensation Transparency Reporting.

This information has been provided by the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) based on the most recent financial data submitted by the district to the Financial Information Database (FID).
