Michigan House to Vote on Counseling Bill This Week


The Michigan House has scheduled a vote on House Bill 4552 for the week of December 14th.  Sponsored by Representative Brett Roberts, the bill is designed to provide school counselors with the updated information they need to help Michigan students and families make stronger career and college choices.  An overview of the bill can be found here, and blog on the bill can be found here.


"This bill goes a long way to help Michigan school counselors provide their students with the current trends, data, and inside strategies on finding the career and college options perfect for them." said Patrick O'Connor, government relations co-chair of the Michigan Association for College Admission Counseling.  "Too many counselors can't get out of their buildings to access this vital information.  This bill will change that, and includes the opportunity for counselors to learn more about one of Michigan's hidden gems, the world of skilled trades."


This bill has the full support of the Michigan Department of Education, and has been publicly praised by State Board of Education President John Austin.  Those wishing to offer their support of the bill can contact their state representative by finding their contact information here.
