2016 House Bill 5384: Overhaul Detroit school district governance structure

Passed 19 to 18 in the Senate on June 8, 2016.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To end the state's emergency management of the insolvent Detroit school district, and give a school board to be elected in November 2016 control of the district's schools. Among many other changes and reforms, the bill requires a meaningful merit pay system for Detroit principals and administrators (but not necessarily teachers), allows the district to hire teachers that have not acquired a "certification" required by the state and more. Notably, the bill does not contain a Senate-passed provision creating a commission appointed by the Detroit mayor and having the authority to block new charter schools from opening in the city, among other powers. House Bill 5383 authorizes using $72 million annually in state revenue to cover $467 million in uncollectable loans the state has extended to Detroit schools over a number of years.
