A bill to remove the requirement that community college districts serve contiguous municipalities has been approved by the House, announced bill author state Rep. Amanda Price.
As it currently stands, community college districts can include multiple municipalities, however those municipalities must share a border in order to be annexed. House Bill 4265 seeks to lift this limitation from community colleges, effectively giving more flexibility for local education of students.
“By empowering local communities to decide for themselves how to best educate their students, we are helping to ensure that our children have affordable options for college regardless of where they live.” said Rep. Price, R-Park Township
HB 4265 now moves to the Senate for further consideration.
