The Annual Budget and Salary/Compensation Transparency Reporting legislation is an opportunity for Stockbridge Community Schools to share, with the public, information on how resources are utilized.
The legislation represents an amendment to the State School Aid Act (Public Act 94 of 1979) and requires each Michigan school district and intermediate school district to post the following budgetary information on its website.
