LISD Special Meeting Scheduled to Discuss Labor Day Waiver

The Lenawee Intermediate School District (LISD) has scheduled a special meeting on November 15, 2022, at 4:00 p.m. for the purpose of conducting a public hearing surrounding the LISD’s application and request for a Labor Day waiver from the Michigan Department of Education.

The LISD has applied to the Michigan Department of Education for a waiver, which would, if granted, allow the LISD and its 11 public constituent school districts to begin the 2023-2024, 2024-2025, and 2025-2026 school years before Labor Day. If granted, the waiver would allow but not require the school districts to begin school before Labor Day. If the waiver is not granted, the school districts would, by law, be required to start the school year after Labor Day.

The meeting, which will be attended (remotely) by a representative of the Michigan Department of Education, will include a review of the legislative requirement and purpose for the public hearing; a brief presentation on the requested waiver; a description of what student outcomes are expected if the waiver were to be granted; and a description of how the student outcomes will be measured by the school districts. 

Members of the public will have the opportunity to provide comment on the proposed waiver application during the public hearing portion of the meeting. The meeting is scheduled for 4:00 PM on November 15, 2022, at the William J. Ross Education Service Center, 4107 N. Adrian Hwy., Adrian, MI 49221.
