Criminal History Internet Subscription Service (CHRISS)
The Michigan State Police asked the Michigan Department of Education to share this memorandum regarding the implementation of the new Criminal History Internet Subscription Service (CHRISS). This is a new web-based portal that will replace the current process for fingerprint-based Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) background checks.
Training is available. For questions on CHRISS or to host a training, please contact Ms. MaryLynn Owen. Her contact information is at the bottom of the memorandum.

Governor's 2017-18 Education Budget
The Governor's FY18 education budget proposes a cap of $60,000,000 on the total amount of state aid dedicated to school districts providing shared time courses. Justification is found in the Governor's Education Budget Issue Paper.
This cap is almost a 50% reduction in shared time funding (state estimate for shared time funding for FY17 is $115,000,000) and if approved will have a dramatic impact on what public school districts can offer in the way of shared time classes to non-public schools. Planning for shared time courses for 2017-18 are under way currently and this proposal will create a great deal of uncertainty. MANS will draft talking points for members to share now, at Public Policy Day and thereafter during the entire budget process.
