The board also is asking the legislature to mandate full and funded investigations by a team of state agencies whenever a Michigan student has died as a result of a safety-related event and make previously approved funding for children’s mental health and school safety recurring. The 2024 state budget provided 456 million for children’s mental health and school safety.
