Description & Overview

MPAAA proudly offers its membership our annual Fall Conference, being held at the Troy Marriott Hotel, September 18th - 20th. With all the changes expected in the next year, this conference provides valuable information for everyone involved in Pupil Accounting, Pupil Auditing, and Educational Data!

The educational system in Michigan is changing at an astounding pace. In the coming school year, we will see changes in Shared time programs, Early Middle Colleges, Schools of Choice, Work Based education and more.  Many of the rules that guide our work are being rewritten as you read this.

MPAAA continues to be your primary ‘go-to’ resource regarding school funding and the legislation pertaining to school operations and pupil accounting. Our conferences are designed to assist anyone working with student data, school funding, enrollment and membership requirements, and auditing. The one thing we can assure you, this conference is not to be missed! 

Speakers

Our speakers this fall range from a federal agency official to a childhood trauma specialist, to State of Michigan staff who help collect educational data and manage the K-12 educational system in Michigan.  Along side these officials, you will be hearing from your colleagues who bring day-to-day experience and best practices to our educational offerings. Our agenda can be found below.
