Recorded Sessions (watch at your leisure)



MPAAA is pleased to offer its MSBO certification course, Legislative Primer, as a recorded session. This online video course will cover the basics of education law in Michigan and explain how bills and laws can be accessed and examined on the various websites maintained by the State of Michigan.  All the official sources of rules and regulations will be covered as well as how to access the relevant documentation, and the appropriate circumstances to use that resource. Finally, some time is given to explain the funding mechanism used for Michigan's schools and how Proposal A still affects school funding, even 20+ years after its passage.

Credit towards MSBO certification

This course is required for the following MSBO certification tracks: Pupil Accounting Specialists (PAS), Pupil Accounting Auditor (PAA), and Specialist in Educational Data (SED). It can also be counted as 3 hours of training as an 'elective' for any other MSBO certification track or 3 hours of continuing education for those who already have their certification.

Once you have access to the course content, there is a form on the webpage that you will need to download and complete for credit towards MSBO certification.  There will be codes presented during the session that need to be written onto the form and it can be returned once you have all the codes completed. There are more detailed instructions on the form itself.

Cost & Enrollment

The course costs $70 for MPAAA members and $95 for non-members.  Once you register for the course (either online with a credit card or by completing THIS FORM and returning it to us with a check), we will activate your access and notify you of the link to access the course within 24 hours.  Should you need faster access, please contact the MPAAA office at (517) 853-1413 and request that access be granted ASAP. Once you have your access link, you'll be able to watch the content at your pleasure, as many times as you wish, up until the course closes on March 31, 2021.
