Rep. DeBoer having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

I have consistently supported additional funding for our brave law enforcement officers, because making our local community safer and protecting victims will always be a top priority for me at the Capitol. We need more police on the streets, and those officers need the right tools to stay safe and fight crime effectively. My local law enforcement officers need new recruits, new equipment, safer vehicles, and more reliable personal protection. House Bill 4605 does not give them those tools. I am voting no because far too much of our funding bypasses our police in this bill and is instead funneled to the governor痴 healthcare bureaucracy. There, that money could be used for a whole host of social justice programs that completely ignore our law enforcement. Efforts to clarify that ambiguity and dedicate that funding to actual public safety efforts were rejected. We need a real commitment to public safety and very clear spending bills that spend our public safety dollars on out top priorities. Without that, I cannot support this bill.

 

Rep. Harris, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

As a 26 year law enforcement officer, I have consistently supported additional funding for our brave law enforcement officers. Making our local community safer and protecting victims will always be a top priority for me at the Capitol. We need more police on the streets, and those officers need the right tools to stay safe and fight crime effectively. My local law enforcement officers need new recruits, new equipment, safer vehicles, and more reliable personal protection. House Bill 4605 does not give them those tools. I am voting no because far too much of our limited funding bypasses our police in this bill and is instead funneled to the governor痴 healthcare bureaucracy. There, that money could be used for a whole host of social justice programs that completely ignore our law enforcement. Efforts to clarify that ambiguity and dedicate that funding to actual public safety efforts were rejected. We need a real commitment to public safety and very clear spending bills that spend our public safety dollars on our top priorities. Without that, I cannot support this bill.

Rep. Schmaltz, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

I will always support our law enforcement. I have consistently supported additional funding for our brave law enforcement officers, because making our local community safer and protecting victims will always be a top priority for me at the Capitol. We need more police on the streets, and those officers need the right tools to stay safe and fight crime effectively. My local law enforcement officers need new recruits, new equipment, safer vehicles, and more reliable personal protection. House Bill 4605 does not give them those tools. I am voting no because far too much of our limited funding bypasses our police in this bill and is instead funneled to the governor痴 healthcare bureaucracy. There, that money could be used for a whole host of social justice programs that completely ignore our law enforcement. Efforts to clarify that ambiguity and dedicate that funding to actual public safety efforts were rejected. We need a real commitment to public safety and very clear spending bills that spend our public safety dollars on our top priorities. Without that, I cannot support this bill.

 

Rep. Jaime Greene, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

I consistently advocate for increased funding to support our courageous law enforcement officers, prioritizing the safety of our local community and the well-being of victims. Ensuring there are more police officers on our streets equipped with the necessary tools is paramount to effective crime prevention. My stance remains firm on the need for new recruits, upgraded equipment, safer vehicles, and reliable personal protection for our local law enforcement.

Regrettably, House Bill 4605 falls short in providing these essential resources. My dissenting vote stems from the bill痴 allocation of funding, which, in my view, inadequately supports our police force. Instead, a significant portion of the limited funding is directed towards the governor痴 healthcare bureaucracy. While I recognize the importance of healthcare initiatives, I firmly believe that these funds should be channeled into enhancing public safety efforts, specifically benefiting our law enforcement agencies.

Efforts to amend the bill and redirect the funding towards genuine public safety endeavors were unfortunately rebuffed. I firmly advocate for transparent and targeted spending, ensuring our public safety dollars are allocated to our highest priorities. Without a clear commitment to bolstering public safety and a precise allocation of resources, I find it impossible to lend my support to this bill.

 

Rep. Phil Green, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

I have consistently supported additional funding for our brave law enforcement officers, because making our local community safer and protecting victims will always be a top priority for me at the Capitol. We need more police on the streets, and those officers need the right tools to stay safe and fight crime effectively. My local law enforcement officers need new recruits, new equipment, safer vehicles, and more reliable personal protection. This version of House Bill 4605 does not give them those tools. I am voting no because these bills leave out the local units of government, specifically the townships that provide policing to their communities. I want to see all local units of government that provide law enforcement to receive these funds. Without that, I cannot support this bill.

 

Reps. Hall, Tisdel and Thompson having reserved the right to explain their protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

Sec. 6. (1) 鼎enter program means a program operated by a district or by an intermediate district for special education pupils from several districts in programs for pupils with autism spectrum disorder, pupils with severe cognitive impairment, pupils with moderate cognitive impairment, pupils with severe multiple impairments, pupils with hearing impairment, pupils with visual impairment, and pupils with physical impairment or other health impairment. Programs for pupils with emotional impairment housed in buildings that do not serve regular education pupils also qualify. Unless otherwise approved by the department, a center program either serves all constituent districts within an intermediate district or serves several districts with less than 50% of the pupils residing in the operating district. In addition, special education center program pupils placed part-time in noncenter programs to comply with the least restrictive environment provisions of section 1412 of the individuals with disabilities education act, 20 USC 1412, may be considered center program pupils for pupil accounting purposes for the time scheduled in either a center program or a noncenter program.

(2) 泥istrict and high school graduation rate means the annual completion and pupil dropout rate that is calculated by the center pursuant to nationally recognized standards.

(3) 泥istrict and high school graduation report means a report of the number of pupils, excluding adult education participants, in the district for the immediately preceding school year, adjusted for those pupils who have transferred into or out of the district or high school, who leave high school with a diploma or other credential of equal status.

(4) 溺embership, except as otherwise provided in this article, means for a district, a public school academy, or an intermediate district the sum of the product of .90 times the number of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance in the district, public school academy, or intermediate district on the pupil membership count day for the current school year, plus the product of .10 times the final audited count from the supplemental count day of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance in the district, public school academy, or intermediate district for the immediately preceding school year. A district痴, public school academy痴, or intermediate district痴 membership is adjusted as provided under section 25e for pupils who enroll after the pupil membership count day in a strict discipline academy operating under sections 1311b to 1311m of the revised school code, MCL 380.1311b to 380.1311m. All pupil counts used in this subsection are as determined by the department and calculated by adding the number of pupils registered for attendance plus pupils received by transfer and minus pupils lost as defined by rules promulgated by the superintendent, and as corrected by a subsequent department audit. The amount of the foundation allowance for a pupil in membership is determined under section 20. In making the calculation of membership, all of the following, as applicable, apply to determining the membership of a district, a public school academy, or an intermediate district:

(a) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, and pursuant to subsection (6), a pupil is counted in membership in the pupil痴 educating district or districts. Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, an individual pupil must not be counted for more than a total of 1.0 full-time equated membership.

(b) If a pupil is educated in a district other than the pupil痴 district of residence, if the pupil is not being educated as part of a cooperative education program, if the pupil痴 district of residence does not give the educating district its approval to count the pupil in membership in the educating district, and if the pupil is not covered by an exception specified in subsection (6) to the requirement that the educating district must have the approval of the pupil痴 district of residence to count the pupil in membership, the pupil is not counted in membership in any district.

(c) A special education pupil educated by the intermediate district is counted in membership in the intermediate district.

(d) A pupil placed by a court or state agency in an on-grounds program of a juvenile detention facility, a child caring institution, or a mental health institution, or a pupil funded under section 53a, is counted in membership in the district or intermediate district approved by the department to operate the program.

(e) A pupil enrolled in the Michigan Schools for the Deaf and Blind is counted in membership in the pupil痴 intermediate district of residence.

(f) A pupil enrolled in a career and technical education program supported by a millage levied over an area larger than a single district or in an area vocational-technical education program established under section 690 of the revised school code, MCL 380.690, is counted in membership only in the pupil痴 district of residence.

(g) A pupil enrolled in a public school academy is counted in membership in the public school academy.

(h) For the purposes of this section and section 6a, for a cyber school, as that term is defined in section 551 of the revised school code, MCL 380.551, that is in compliance with section 553a of the revised school code, MCL 380.553a, a pupil痴 participation in the cyber school痴 educational program is considered regular daily attendance, and for a district or public school academy, a pupil痴 participation in a virtual course as that term is defined in section 21f is considered regular daily attendance. Beginning July 1, 2021, this subdivision is subject to section 8c. It is the intent of the legislature that the immediately preceding sentence apply retroactively and is effective July 1, 2021. For the purposes of this subdivision, for a pupil enrolled in a cyber school, all of the following apply with regard to the participation requirement as described in this subdivision:

(i) Except as otherwise provided in this subdivision, the pupil shall participate in each scheduled course on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable. If the pupil is absent on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable, the pupil must attend and participate in class during the next 10 consecutive school days if the absence was unexcused, or during the next 30 calendar days if the absence was excused.

(ii) For a pupil who is not learning sequentially, 1 or more of the following must be met on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable, for each scheduled course to satisfy the participation requirement under this subdivision:

(A) The pupil attended a live lesson from the teacher.

(B) The pupil logged into a lesson or lesson activity and the login can be documented.

(C) The pupil and teacher engaged in a subject-oriented telephone conversation.

(D) There is documentation of an email dialogue between the pupil and teacher.

(E) There is documentation of activity or work between the learning coach and pupil.

(F) An alternate form of attendance as determined and agreed upon by the cyber school and the pupil membership auditor was met.

(iii) For a pupil using sequential learning, the participation requirement under this subdivision is satisfied if either of the following occurs:

(A) Except as otherwise provided in this sub-subparagraph, the pupil and the teacher of record or mentor complete a 2-way interaction for 1 course during the week on which pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable, occurs, and the 3 consecutive weeks following that week. However, if a school break is scheduled during any of the weeks described in this sub-subparagraph that is 4 or more days in length or instruction has been canceled districtwide during any of the weeks described in this sub‑subparagraph for 3 or more school days, the district is not required to ensure that the pupil and the teacher of record or mentor completed a 2-way interaction for that week. As used in this sub-subparagraph:

(I) 2-way interaction means the communication that occurs between the teacher of record or mentor and pupil, where 1 party initiates communication and a response from the other party follows that communication. Responses as described in this sub-sub-subparagraph must be to the communication initiated by the teacher of record or mentor, and not some other action taken. This interaction may occur through, but is not limited to, means such as email, telephone, instant messaging, or face-to-face conversation. A parent- or legal-guardian-facilitated 2-way interaction is considered a 2-way interaction if the pupil is in any of grades K to 5 and does not yet possess the skills necessary to participate in 2-way interactions unassisted. The interactions described in this sub-sub-subparagraph must relate to a virtual course on the pupil痴 schedule and pertain to course content or progress.

(II) 溺entor means a professional employee of the district who monitors the pupil痴 progress, ensures the pupil has access to needed technology, is available for assistance, and ensures access to the teacher of record. A mentor may also be the teacher of record if the mentor meets the definition of a teacher of record under this sub-subparagraph and the district is the provider for the course.

(III) 典eacher of record means a teacher to whom all of the following apply:

(1) The teacher is responsible for providing instruction, determining instructional methods for each pupil, diagnosing learning needs, assessing pupil learning, prescribing intervention strategies and modifying lessons, reporting outcomes, and evaluating the effects of instruction and support strategies. The teacher of record may coordinate the distribution and assignment of the responsibilities described in this sub-sub-sub-subparagraph with other teachers participating in the instructional process for a course.

(2) The teacher is certified for the grade level or is working under a valid substitute permit, authorization, or approval issued by the department.

(3) The teacher has a personnel identification code provided by the center.

(IV) 展eek means a period that starts on Wednesday and ends the following Tuesday.

(B) The pupil completes a combination of 1 or more of the following activities for each scheduled course on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable:

(I) Documented attendance in a virtual course where synchronous, live instruction occurred with the teacher.

(II) Documented completion of a course assignment.

(III) Documented completion of a course lesson or lesson activity.

(IV) Documented pupil access to an ongoing lesson, which does not include a login.

(V) Documented physical attendance on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable, in each scheduled course, if the pupil will attend at least 50% of the instructional time for each scheduled course on-site, face-to-face with the teacher of record. As used in this sub-sub-subparagraph, 鍍eacher of record means that term as defined in subparagraph (iii)(A).

(iv) For purposes of subparagraph (iii), each scheduled course currently being attempted by the pupil, rather than every course on the pupil痴 schedule for the entire term, is considered a part of each scheduled course for the pupil.

(i) For a new district or public school academy beginning its operation after December 31, 1994, membership for the first 2 full or partial fiscal years of operation is determined as follows:

(i) If operations begin before the pupil membership count day for the fiscal year, membership is the average number of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance on the pupil membership count day for the current school year and on the supplemental count day for the current school year, as determined by the department and calculated by adding the number of pupils registered for attendance on the pupil membership count day plus pupils received by transfer and minus pupils lost as defined by rules promulgated by the superintendent, and as corrected by a subsequent department audit, plus the final audited count from the supplemental count day for the current school year, and dividing that sum by 2.

(ii) If operations begin after the pupil membership count day for the fiscal year and not later than the supplemental count day for the fiscal year, membership is the final audited count of the number of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance on the supplemental count day for the current school year.

(j) If a district is the authorizing body for a public school academy, then, in the first school year in which pupils are counted in membership on the pupil membership count day in the public school academy, the determination of the district痴 membership excludes from the district痴 pupil count for the immediately preceding supplemental count day any pupils who are counted in the public school academy on that first pupil membership count day who were also counted in the district on the immediately preceding supplemental count day.

(k) For an extended school year program approved by the superintendent, a pupil enrolled, but not scheduled to be in regular daily attendance, on a pupil membership count day, is counted in membership.

(l) To be counted in membership, a pupil must meet the minimum age requirement to be eligible to attend school under section 1147 of the revised school code, MCL 380.1147, and must be less than 20 years of age on September 1 of the school year except as follows:

(i) A special education pupil who is enrolled and receiving instruction in a special education program or service approved by the department, who does not have a high school diploma, and who is less than 26 years of age as of September 1 of the current school year is counted in membership.

(ii) A pupil who is determined by the department to meet all of the following may be counted in membership:

(A) Is enrolled in a public school academy or an alternative education high school diploma program, that is primarily focused on educating pupils with extreme barriers to education, such as being homeless as that term is defined under 42 USC 11302.

(B) Had dropped out of school.

(C) Is less than 22 years of age as of September 1 of the current school year.

(iii) If a child does not meet the minimum age requirement to be eligible to attend school for that school year under section 1147 of the revised school code, MCL 380.1147, but will be 5 years of age not later than December 1 of that school year, the district may count the child in membership for that school year if the parent or legal guardian has notified the district in writing that the parent or legal guardian intends to enroll the child in kindergarten for that school year.

(m) An individual who has achieved a high school diploma is not counted in membership. An individual who has achieved a high school equivalency certificate is not counted in membership unless the individual is a student with a disability as that term is defined in R 340.1702 of the Michigan Administrative Code. An individual participating in a job training program funded under former section 107a or a jobs program funded under former section 107b, administered by the department of labor and economic opportunity, or participating in any successor of either of those 2 programs, is not counted in membership.

(n) If a pupil counted in membership in a public school academy is also educated by a district or intermediate district as part of a cooperative education program, the pupil is counted in membership only in the public school academy unless a written agreement signed by all parties designates the party or parties in which the pupil is counted in membership, and the instructional time scheduled for the pupil in the district or intermediate district is included in the full-time equated membership determination under subdivision (q) and section 101. However, for pupils receiving instruction in both a public school academy and in a district or intermediate district but not as a part of a cooperative education program, the following apply:

(i) If the public school academy provides instruction for at least 1/2 of the class hours required under section 101, the public school academy receives as its prorated share of the full-time equated membership for each of those pupils an amount equal to 1 times the product of the hours of instruction the public school academy provides divided by the number of hours required under section 101 for full-time equivalency, and the remainder of the full-time membership for each of those pupils is allocated to the district or intermediate district providing the remainder of the hours of instruction.

(ii) If the public school academy provides instruction for less than 1/2 of the class hours required under section 101, the district or intermediate district providing the remainder of the hours of instruction receives as its prorated share of the full-time equated membership for each of those pupils an amount equal to 1 times the product of the hours of instruction the district or intermediate district provides divided by the number of hours required under section 101 for full-time equivalency, and the remainder of the full-time membership for each of those pupils is allocated to the public school academy.

(o) An individual less than 16 years of age as of September 1 of the current school year who is being educated in an alternative education program is not counted in membership if there are also adult education participants being educated in the same program or classroom.

(p) The department shall give a uniform interpretation of full-time and part-time memberships.

(q) The number of class hours used to calculate full-time equated memberships must be consistent with section 101. In determining full-time equated memberships for pupils who are enrolled in a postsecondary institution or for pupils engaged in an internship or work experience under section 1279h of the revised school code, MCL 380.1279h, a pupil is not considered to be less than a full-time equated pupil solely because of the effect of the pupil痴 postsecondary enrollment or engagement in the internship or work experience, including necessary travel time, on the number of class hours provided by the district to the pupil.

(r) Full-time equated memberships for pupils in kindergarten are determined by dividing the number of instructional hours scheduled and provided per year per kindergarten pupil by the same number used for determining full-time equated memberships for pupils in grades 1 to 12. However, to the extent allowable under federal law, for a district or public school academy that provides evidence satisfactory to the department that it used federal title I money in the 2 immediately preceding school fiscal years to fund full-time kindergarten, full-time equated memberships for pupils in kindergarten are determined by dividing the number of class hours scheduled and provided per year per kindergarten pupil by a number equal to 1/2 the number used for determining full-time equated memberships for pupils in grades 1 to 12. The change in the counting of full-time equated memberships for pupils in kindergarten that took effect for 2012-2013 is not a mandate.

(s) For a district or a public school academy that has pupils enrolled in a grade level that was not offered by the district or public school academy in the immediately preceding school year, the number of pupils enrolled in that grade level to be counted in membership is the average of the number of those pupils enrolled and in regular daily attendance on the pupil membership count day and the supplemental count day of the current school year. Membership is calculated by adding the number of pupils registered for attendance in that grade level on the pupil membership count day plus pupils received by transfer and minus pupils lost as defined by rules promulgated by the superintendent, and as corrected by subsequent department audit, plus the final audited count from the supplemental count day for the current school year, and dividing that sum by 2.

(t) A pupil enrolled in a cooperative education program may be counted in membership in the pupil痴 district of residence with the written approval of all parties to the cooperative agreement.

(u) If, as a result of a disciplinary action, a district determines through the district痴 alternative or disciplinary education program that the best instructional placement for a pupil is in the pupil痴 home or otherwise apart from the general school population, if that placement is authorized in writing by the district superintendent and district alternative or disciplinary education supervisor, and if the district provides appropriate instruction as described in this subdivision to the pupil at the pupil痴 home or otherwise apart from the general school population, the district may count the pupil in membership on a pro rata basis, with the proration based on the number of hours of instruction the district actually provides to the pupil divided by the number of hours required under section 101 for full-time equivalency. For the purposes of this subdivision, a district is considered to be providing appropriate instruction if all of the following are met:

(i) The district provides at least 2 nonconsecutive hours of instruction per week to the pupil at the pupil痴 home or otherwise apart from the general school population under the supervision of a certificated teacher.

(ii) The district provides instructional materials, resources, and supplies that are comparable to those otherwise provided in the district痴 alternative education program.

(iii) Course content is comparable to that in the district痴 alternative education program.

(iv) Credit earned is awarded to the pupil and placed on the pupil痴 transcript.

(v) If a pupil was enrolled in a public school academy on the pupil membership count day, if the public school academy痴 contract with its authorizing body is revoked or the public school academy otherwise ceases to operate, and if the pupil enrolls in a district within 45 days after the pupil membership count day, the department shall adjust the district痴 pupil count for the pupil membership count day to include the pupil in the count.

(w) For a public school academy that has been in operation for at least 2 years and that suspended operations for at least 1 semester and is resuming operations, membership is the sum of the product of .90 times the number of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance on the first pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, whichever is first, occurring after operations resume, plus the product of .10 times the final audited count from the most recent pupil membership count day or supplemental count day that occurred before suspending operations, as determined by the superintendent.

(x) If a district痴 membership for a particular fiscal year, as otherwise calculated under this subsection, would be less than 1,550 pupils, the district has 4.5 or fewer pupils per square mile, as determined by the department, and the district does not receive funding under section 22d(2), the district痴 membership is considered to be the membership figure calculated under this subdivision. If a district educates and counts in its membership pupils in grades 9 to 12 who reside in a contiguous district that does not operate grades 9 to 12 and if 1 or both of the affected districts request the department to use the determination allowed under this sentence, the department shall include the square mileage of both districts in determining the number of pupils per square mile for each of the districts for the purposes of this subdivision. If a district has established a community engagement advisory committee in partnership with the department of treasury, is required to submit a deficit elimination plan or an enhanced deficit elimination plan under section 1220 of the revised school code, MCL 380.1220, and is located in a city with a population between 9,000 and 11,000, as determined by the department, that is in a county with a population between 150,000 and 160,000, as determined by the department, the district痴 membership is considered to be the membership figure calculated under this subdivision. The membership figure calculated under this subdivision is the greater of the following:

(i) The average of the district痴 membership for the 3-fiscal-year period ending with that fiscal year, calculated by adding the district痴 actual membership for each of those 3 fiscal years, as otherwise calculated under this subsection, and dividing the sum of those 3 membership figures by 3.

(ii) The district痴 actual membership for that fiscal year as otherwise calculated under this subsection.

(y) Full-time equated memberships for special education pupils who are not enrolled in kindergarten but are enrolled in a classroom program under R 340.1754 of the Michigan Administrative Code are determined by dividing the number of class hours scheduled and provided per year by 450. Full-time equated memberships for special education pupils who are not enrolled in kindergarten but are receiving early childhood special education services under R 340.1755 or R 340.1862 of the Michigan Administrative Code are determined by dividing the number of hours of service scheduled and provided per year per pupil by 180.

(z) A pupil of a district that begins its school year after Labor Day who is enrolled in an intermediate district program that begins before Labor Day is not considered to be less than a full-time pupil solely due to instructional time scheduled but not attended by the pupil before Labor Day.

(aa) For the first year in which a pupil is counted in membership on the pupil membership count day in a middle college program, the membership is the average of the full-time equated membership on the pupil membership count day and on the supplemental count day for the current school year, as determined by the department. If a pupil described in this subdivision was counted in membership by the operating district on the immediately preceding supplemental count day, the pupil is excluded from the district痴 immediately preceding supplemental count for the purposes of determining the district痴 membership.

(bb) A district or public school academy that educates a pupil who attends a United States Olympic Education Center may count the pupil in membership regardless of whether or not the pupil is a resident of this state.

(cc) A pupil enrolled in a district other than the pupil痴 district of residence under section 1148(2) of the revised school code, MCL 380.1148, is counted in the educating district.

(dd) For a pupil enrolled in a dropout recovery program that meets the requirements of section 23a, the pupil is counted as 1/12 of a full-time equated membership for each month that the district operating the program reports that the pupil was enrolled in the program and was in full attendance. However, if the special membership counting provisions under this subdivision and the operation of the other membership counting provisions under this subsection result in a pupil being counted as more than 1.0 FTE in a fiscal year, the payment made for the pupil under sections 22a and 22b must not be based on more than 1.0 FTE for that pupil, and any portion of an FTE for that pupil that exceeds 1.0 is instead paid under section 25g. The district operating the program shall report to the center the number of pupils who were enrolled in the program and were in full attendance for a month not later than 30 days after the end of the month. A district shall not report a pupil as being in full attendance for a month unless both of the following are met:

(i) A personalized learning plan is in place on or before the first school day of the month for the first month the pupil participates in the program.
