Board Memo Legal Opinions

Recently there has been interest by some schools to provide “shared time” services to local private schools. Please be advised that in all similar circumstances it is incumbent upon academy boards to first establish the legality of any proposal outside its current charter with Bay Mills Community College. In other words, it is expected that all proposals such as shared time, expansion of grade levels, change of locations, long term financing, or any other matter could potentially result in an amendment to the charter document must first be reviewed by the academy board, the board’s attorney and then submitted in a letter, including legal opinion, to Erin Forrester, Compliance Coordinator, Bay Mills Community College.
