Information Concerning Compulsory School Attendance and the Establishment, Operation, and Supervision of Non-Public Schools for Children and Youth Between the Ages of 6 and 16 Years. A Position Paper.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
The staff of the Michigan Department of Education prepared this paper to place in proper perspective the statutory role of the local school district in enforcing school attendance of children, aged 6 to 16 years, and the statutory responsibility of the State Board of Education for supervising nonpublic schools in Michigan. The paper is designed to answer many questions currently arising not only from within the ranks of school district officials, but also from parents of children attending or planning to attend nonpublic schools. The first section of the bulletin identifies and describes the responsibility of parents and of those public school officials where the parents reside in complying with the provisions of the compulsory school laws of Michigan. The bulletin then identifies and describes briefly the privileges of individuals and groups to establish and operate nonpublic schools for children between the ages of 6 and 16 years. The final part of the report identifies the responsibility of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, as set forth in the provisions of State statutes, to supervise private, denominational, and parochial schools.
