Personnel Approvals

Wayne RESA is responsible for maintaining personnel documentation related to the professional credentials of providers of special education programs and services employed by Wayne County school districts.  It is the district’s responsibility to ensure proper credentialing of the individuals they employ.

Special education placements must meet the qualifications outlined in the Michigan Administrative Rules for Special Education (MARSE). If a candidate does not meet MARSE qualifications, the district must request approval through the Michigan Online Education Certification System (MOECS).
