Count Day is Wed. October 6th! STUDENT COUNT DAY AND SCHOOL FUNDING • The count days and school funding are mandated through the State School Aid Act. • Count Day is when all public schools in Michigan tally the number of students attending their schools. • Count information is critical to districts because each student translates into state funding. • State aid is based on the number of students legally enrolled on or before count day.

Q: Is a multi-purpose instructional activity area at the High School really a need? A: Overwhelming, yes. ● We may be a small district, but our high school students still need experiential learning opportunities that increases their preparedness for life after graduation. Having the flexible space of a multi-purpose facility will allow our high school staff to add such things as: large group presentations related to health and safety, career and technical education options throughout the county, job fairs, college application/FAFSA nights, fine arts celebrations, large group projects, robotic competitions, music, speech, theatre, debate, and additional P.E. classes. We need space for indoor marching band practice, flag corp practice, sideline cheer and to start a competitive cheer program. https://youtu.be/MovmSpt-Aok
