This shall serve as an update to an earlier communication about State of Michigan Teacher/Support Staff hazard pay legislation.  According to the Legislation (click here External Link), Districts have until November 9 to provide communication to staff on the process.  

As referenced in the October 23rd email, the State of Michigan has established a grant through which employees can receive additional compensation for work during the 2019-2020 school year.  Payment will be made directly from the Treasury Department, however, schools are tasked with gathering and verifying the information.  We have developed a process indicated below.  It is important to understand that eligibility requirements are established by the State of Michigan and the Department of Treasury.    

Step 1:  Determine Eligibility:

  • Teachers (up to $500) - Please review here External Link (pages 4-12) 
    • employed prior to April 2, 2020 and worked at least 75% of their workload in a brick and mortar classroom 
    • worked additional time or incurred additional costs to support student learning       
  • Support Staff (up to $250.00) - Please review 2 documents here External Link and here External Link (pages 13-19)
    • includes paraprofessionals, itinerants, secretaries, bus drivers, counselors, food service, library supervisors, computer techs, custodians, and maintenance. 
    • employed prior to April 2, 2020 and worked at least 75% of their workload in a brick and mortar classroom 
    • worked additional time or incurred additional costs to support student learning   

Step 2:   Process Application:

  • If you qualify based on the above criteria, please complete the Google forms below by 12p on December 4th (Sorry, no extensions):

Step 3:  Timeline for Check Distribution:

  • October 23 - November 9:
    • The district will pull the draft eligibility list from the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) Registration of Educational Personnel (REP) report and send Form 5734 to all eligible employees.  This communication shall satisfy this requirement.
  • December 4: 
    • Eligible Grant recipients must complete Form 5734 (Google form and paper copy) the Teacher and Support Staff COVID-19 Grants Certification (Step 2). 
  • December 16: 
    • Deadline for the district to upload and electronically submit the eligibility lists to the Michigan Department of Treasury.
  • February 25:
    • Checks are estimated to be mailed on or about February 25, 2021 to the address of residency provided on the eligibility lists (Step 2).  Checks will come directly from the Department of Treasury.

The State of Michigan Department of Treasury have developed an FAQ External Link for you to review.  This is the same information that we are monitoring for updates.    Please remember this program was not created or negotiated by your local Association or by Kentwood Public Schools and the rules for applying for and receiving these funds have been created by the legislation and the Michigan Treasury Department.  

We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through the process. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact my office.
