2006 House Bill 5675

Senate Roll Call 123: Passed

To require that reasonable measures be undertaken to ensure the accuracy of school personnel criminal record reports issued by the Michigan Department of Education. This relates to <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2005-SB-601">Public Act 138 of 2005</a>, which requires school employee lists to be cross-checked against State Police criminal conviction information, and schools to fire those convicted of certain crimes. The bill allows schools to not release the names of convicted employees for 15 business days after receiving the list from the state. After that time schools would have to release the names of employees with felony or serious misdemeanor convictions, but would have discretion regarding those with less serious misdemeanors. The bill was introduced after the first round of conviction record distributions included numerous inaccuracies.
