Remo­val resour­ces (inclu­ding online per­mis­si­ons tool): michiganlegalhelp.org/self-help-tools/crime-traffic-and-id/i‑have-adult-criminal-conviction-i-would-set-aside-expunge Online: michiganlegalhelp.org/call_intake_intro Q1: So, one of my teachers/counselors/principals/etc. reti­red at the end of the last school year and we had plan­ned to bring him back to teaching/coaching/etc.part in 2022–23. Does that mean we can­not res­to­re them at all for next fall? Even if they are in a cri­ti­cal area of scar­ci­ty? Not even if they earn less than a third of their final average ear­nings? If more peop­le can have their cri­mi­nal records expun­ged, more peop­le will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to find good jobs and secu­re and afford­a­ble housing. This will help streng­t­hen fami­lies, com­mu­nities and the local eco­no­my across the sta­te and pro­mo­te public safe­ty. The gui­de­li­nes sta­te that third-par­ty tea­chers must hold an alter­na­ti­ve tea­ching licen­se. The­se gui­de­li­nes do NOT reflect chan­ges to the bud­get. In other words, if the third-par­ty tea­cher is cer­ti­fied in Michi­gan in both the gra­de level and sub­ject mat­ter they teach, they can act as a regis­tered tea­cher without the local district having to obtain a sup­ply tea­cher licen­se for them. The wor­d­ing of the note men­ti­ons an excep­ti­on for tea­chers aut­ho­ri­zed under MCL 388.1621f, but does not go into the details of what this means. In other words, take the time to check this out befo­re get­ting sub-licen­ses for vir­tu­al tea­chers this year.

Michig­an­Works! Sou­thwest (Branch, Cal­ho­un, Kalama­zoo & St. Joseph Coun­ty): bit.ly/mics-mwsw “The Tob­ac­co 21 packa­ge aligns Michi­gan with pro­gress made at the federal level and is an important step in pre­ven­ting tob­ac­co pro­ducts from fal­ling into the wrong hands,” said Sena­tor Paul Woj­no. “Kudos to Gover­nor Whit­mer for working with me and my col­leagues in the legis­la­tu­re to pro­tect our com­mu­nities and public health across the sta­te.” Intro­du­ced by Sena­tor Lana Theis R‑Brighton to impo­se a licen­sing man­da­te on Montesso­ri tea­chers. This would requi­re app­li­cants to have a bachelor‘s degree and recei­ve creden­ti­als from cer­tain Montesso­ri orga­niz­a­ti­ons. Refer­red to com­mit­tee, no fur­ther action has been taken at this time. Con­ta­ct Dave Bou­cher at dboucher@freepress.com or 313–938-4591 and fol­low him on Twit­ter @Dave_Boucher1. Intro­du­ced by Sena­tor Micha­el Mac­Do­nald R‑Macomb Town­ship to impo­se a licen­sing man­da­te for die­ti­ti­ans and nut­ri­tio­nists, as repealed in 2014. The pre­vious man­da­te was never enfor­ced becau­se the licen­sing office was unab­le to deve­lop accep­ta­ble regis­tra­ti­on and edu­ca­ti­on requi­re­ments, and becau­se of con­cerns about First Amend­ment free­dom of speech regar­ding peop­le giving nut­ri­tio­nal advice in public forums.

Refer­red to com­mit­tee, no fur­ther action has been taken at this time. Alt­hough the legis­la­tor appro­ved the own-initia­ti­ve peti­ti­on, it did not vote to enfor­ce its decisi­on immedia­te­ly. Des­pi­te the repeal of this law, the sta­te Minis­try of Health still has the power to enact com­pre­hen­si­ve rules in the event of a pan­de­mic. The mea­su­re, known as the Older Michi­ga­ni­ans Act, requi­res such a review for “any new employee, employee, con­trac­tor, sub­con­trac­tor or vol­un­teer who has had per­so­nal con­ta­ct with a cus­to­mer, per­so­nal con­ta­ct with a cus­to­mer, access to a customer‘s per­so­nal pro­per­ty, or access to con­fi­den­ti­al cus­to­mer infor­ma­ti­on,” accord­ing to an ana­ly­sis of the law. Down­load: ‘Redemp­ti­on‘ in an era of widespread cri­mi­nal back­ground checks Alt­hough the­re is a pro­ce­du­re in Michi­gan for expun­ging a cri­mi­nal record, it wasn‘t avail­ab­le to ever­yo­ne – only someo­ne with a limi­ted cri­mi­nal record (one fel­o­ny or two offen­ses*) who was five years befo­re the end of their sen­tence could app­ly. Many offen­ces have also been exclu­ded from era­di­ca­ti­on, inclu­ding traf­fic offen­ces.
