Budget and Salary/Compensation Transparency Reporting

Public Act 110 of 2010 – The State School Aid Act – added language that requires every school district in Michigan to post specific information on its website within 30 days after a board adopts its annual operating budget for the following school fiscal year, or after a board adopts a subsequent revision to that budget.

The information that is required to be posted includes:
  • A chart of personnel expenditures (including salaries, employee benefit costs, retirement benefit costs, and all other personnel costs)
  • A link to the current collective bargaining agreement for each bargaining unit
  • A link to each health care benefits plan offered to any bargaining unit or employee in the district
  • A link to the audit report for the most recent fiscal year
  • The total salary and description of benefits for the superintendent of the district and for each employee of the district whose salary exceeds $100,000
  • The annual amount spent on dues paid to associations
  • The annual amount spent on lobbying or lobbying services
It should be noted that while this section of law (MCL 388.1618(2)) is designed to provide transparency for certain financial areas of school operations, by no means does this information represent a comprehensive financial report. The data contained in this web-based report corresponds only to the selected information that is required by law. Further, the law acknowledges the existing reporting requirements for Intermediate School Districts and allows the data already posted in those reports to satisfy many of the items listed above. Where appropriate that information has been linked for the purpose of this report.

Current Collective Bargaining Agreements


All employees of the GISD are categorized by classification of position held. All classifications are established according to demands of the position, level of responsibility, job functions performed, credentials and skills required. Compensation packages take into account such factors as years of experience, the length of work assignment (full year/academic year), professional preparation, advanced degrees and/or comparisons to similar jobs.

The GISD Board of Education, the Genesee Intermediate Education Association (GIEA) and the Genesee Intermediate Educational Support Personnel Association (GIESPA) bargaining units take pride in the continued Win-Win spirit utilized in negotiating labor agreements. The agreements represent a commitment to excellence in education for the students and the constituent school districts in our service area.

This commitment to excellence was recognized when the bargaining units and the GISD Board were named Distinguished Winners of the 2000 NEA-Saturn/UAW Partnership Award. The Contract and Problem Solving Committee (CAPSC) is integral to the success of the Win-Win negotiations process. Representatives from administration and both bargaining units meet on a monthly basis, year-round in order to discuss issues and solve problems before they reach the grievance level. Because of the successful Win-Win work environment, GISD was able to maintain previous contracts via several extensions, and recently ratified new contracts with GIEA through 2017-2018 and GIESPA through 2018-2019.

Lobbying Services


The 57 ISDs (or Regional Educational Service Agencies) were created by the legislature in 1962 to bring about quality and equitable educational opportunities to students and schools throughout the state. Because public education is funded and regulated by the state and federal government, it is necessary for ISDs to use some resources to fund activities that promote public accountability, research and government communications.

Because the GISD is publicly funded, it is responsible for communicating its programs and services to its constituent school districts and the community at large. It is also responsible for protecting the public's investment by securing appropriate legal counsel and legislative advocacy. Consequently, from time to time, GISD may consult with firms external to the organization to secure advice and assistance.
