Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed into law a package of bills extending the sunset date and creating reporting requirements on Michigan’s very popular Dropout Recovery Program. The program is utilized by public school districts throughout Michigan to assist students with completing their high school degree after dropping out of school. It was created in 2012 to allow districts to identify students who dropped out of high school and enroll them in a specialized program with students from other participating districts to complete the courses needed to graduate. This allows districts to partner together to meet the needs of students who have faced challenges in the classroom, while sharing the cost to run the program. The bi-partisan bills were sponsored by Senator Jeremy Moss (D-Southfield) and Senator Lana Theis (R-Brighton).
