Community College Act of 1966. Act 331 of 1966 (as Amended through March 23, 1999).
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. Community Coll. Services Unit.
The Community College Act of 1966 was enacted to redraft and unite the laws relating to community colleges in the state of Michigan. This document includes the original document plus amendments passed as of March 1999. The first part deals with the creation and government of districts. This includes districts comprised of elementary and intermediate school districts, the annexation of counties and townships, and also descriptions of the board of trustees. The first part deals extensively with the process by which districts are formed, including eligibility of school districts, the filing process, and definition by size. It also contains guidelines on how to hold elections, both for positions on the board of trustees (of which there are 7) and annexation elections. The second part deals with the general powers and duties of districts. It discusses districts as corporate entities, their legal names, and the various powers, duties and responsibilities of the board of trustees. The board has power much akin to that of a chief executive officer. Its role is largely financial, as they must handle much of the districts finance and prepare estimates of spending and taxes for the coming year. The second part also deals with public safety officers and police officer on college campuses, and their power, responsibilities, and jurisdiction within the college. (JA)
