Fiscal Action Team

This action team will begin by identifying all of the funding streams available to schools/districts and the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) outside of the school district foundation allowance (those directly specified under ESSA and other funding sources as well), and the regulations/opportunities in those streams. This team will then work with the supports teams and others to identify how the funds can be used in support of key activities, and to identify areas where MDE may need to seek additional flexibility from the federal government in order to enact our key goals.
