Board of Directors

What do we believe drives our work for the association?  MPAAA has highlighted the following areas of focus for our association's work on behalf of our membership: To impact policy, to inform and educate our membership through training on issues affecting attendance, data collection and accountability measures

The Michigan Pupil Accounting and Attendance Association was organized in 1935 and has been a consistent figure in child accounting for over 80 years. To ensure your pupil accounting personnel are prepared to meet the demands and challenges of accurate pupil accounting, attendance recordkeeping and Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) and Michigan Department of Education submissions, MPAAA strongly encourages you to register your pupil accounting and attendance personnel for MPAAA membership as well as any one of the conferences and workshops the MPAAA organizes during the school year.  You can find details on membership and conference references within this site.
