State Rep. Mark Tisdel and fellow legislators this month announced a plan to ensure parents are informed about major decisions that affect children at school.
Tisdel’s House Bill 5330 would simply require public schools to notify parents of decisions that will have a long-term impact on their child’s physical or mental health, academics, or future career.
“Involved, informed parents are fundamental to a child’s well-being and growth,” said Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills. “Good Michigan teachers, counselors, and administrators work with parents to help direct students’ paths, and open lines of communication and collaboration to facilitate learning and lifelong success. My plan will ensure schools keep parents in the loop about decisions that will have long-lasting effects, whether helping a student overcome an academic struggle, deal with bullying, or apply for college.”
HB 5330 was referred to the House Committee on Families, Children, and Seniors.
“Michigan’s transparency laws fall woefully short — making it hard for Michiganders to hold their government accountable,” said Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills. “The government records of our highest-ranking elected officials aren’t disclosed at all. Meanwhile, citizens’ legitimate transparency requests get stonewalled as bureaucrats drag their feet and exploit vague laws to keep the people of Michigan in the dark.

“From the Michigan Legislature to the U.S. Congress, William S. Broomfield was a titan for Oakland County,” said Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills. “Congressman Broomfield had a record of working across the aisle to strengthen our nation and its people — especially the people of our community.”
