The Miller Johnson School Policy Services™ addresses several interrelated issues.
For example, some Boards have not reviewed or updated their policies for years. Other Boards contract out policy development to large national companies that lack particular expertise in Michigan Education Law and whose policies can be expensive, overly-restrictive and, for the most part, lengthy and sometimes misleading attempts to restate the law. The end result is a hefty binder of policies and administrative procedures that no one reads or remembers. A set of rules that, when actually consulted, raise as many questions as answers and, in the worst cases, increase the likelihood of District liability or interfere with the reasonable exercise of discretion by the Board and District employees.
For a reasonable flat fee, the Miller Johnson School Policy Services™ provides clients with the policies and administrative procedures they need and deserve.
The Miller Johnson School Policy Services™ delivers a set of clear and concise basic policies that include all policies required by federal and Michigan law and, in addition, those policies most educational institutions require to promote student success and good community relations. Most significantly the flat fee includes the full cost of the services of an Education Law specialist to walk the Board through the policy process, to adapt draft policies and administrative procedures to meet the needs of the educational institution and to revise or create any additional policies and administrative procedures necessary to meet the educational intuition’s unique needs and preferences.
Now Offering A Personnel Policy Package
The changes in labor law in Michigan this year have been significant, and your School District needs policies and regulations that comply with the new law.
Specifically, sections 1248 and 1249 of the Revised School Code have been modified and require school districts to have in place clear and transparent policies or procedures relative to:
- teacher placement,
- staff and program reductions,
- filling teacher vacancies, and
- teacher and administrator evaluations.
Moreover, the prohibited subjects of bargaining that would normally allow school districts to make unilateral decisions on these topics are going away effective February 13, 2024. So, time is of the essence!
Have no fear, the Miller Johnson Education Law Team has you covered.
Due to the importance of these policies and regulations, Miller Johnson is offering the opportunity for school districts that are not part of the MJ School Policy ServicesTM to purchase the necessary policies and administrative regulations (or procedures) to make sure you are compliant with the changing law and to set the standard your school district will abide by going into collective bargaining.
The entire package is available for a total price of $1,000.
