Legislative Services

Wayne RESA works to promote those legislative issues important to and supported by Wayne County superintendents and school boards. Having a registered lobbyist agent working in Lansing with the 21 Representatives in the House and 7 Senators in the Senate, Wayne County concerns are voiced and positions are taken on education issues affecting our region.

Quick Guides are updated regularly giving a brief synopsis of bills currently before the House and/or Senate. Positions taken on proposed legislation are those determined by the Tri County Alliance. Quick guides will be published once the Legislature begins session.

School Truancy Programs

Attending school on time and everyday is the foundation that increases a student's learning potential and positive opportunities through life. It is also the law. The ERASE Truancy Intervention Program and the Prosecutor's Abolish Chronic Truancy Program (PACT) help make sure all of our children are in school to receive the benefits of education. These Truancy Intervention Programs are an effort by the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office to improve school attendance by working with students, parents, schools and the community to ensure a faster, more effective response to truancy problems.
