FIVE CANDIDATES FILED PETITIONS TO VIE FOR BOARD OF ED SEATS
HOLLAND, MI - Five candidates will appear on the ballot for two seats on the Ottawa Area Intermediate School District Board of Education. The deadline for filing petitions for the positions was May 8, 2023.
In March 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) temporarily waived certain Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) requirements and conditions due to the Public Health Emergency (PHE) Declaration. The easing of these rules helped prevent people with Medicaid and CHIP from losing their health coverage during the pandemic. The PHE will end 5/11/23 and families will need to go through Medicaid redetermination to retain the benefit. The State has shared with us its prediction that this could cause a significant decrease in our Medicaid Eligibility rate in Michigan. This rate is used for the School Service Program reimbursement and will impact the reimbursement for each LEA in the program.
