Ingham ISD Annual Website Report

Ingham Intermediate School District (ISD) welcomes the opportunity to communicate with our community about how we use the resources provided to our organization on behalf of all area learners. Our spending decisions support our mission to enhance educational opportunities and reflect our commitment to the wise use of taxpayer dollars.

Through tax dollars that fund Ingham ISD, we help educate students with special needs and special talents. We assist students near graduation who are in search of meaningful, real-life career experiences and help raise awareness of career possibilities from the earliest grades. Thanks to the financial support of our community, we help our youngest children enter school better prepared to learn. We train teachers, offer operational management support services to our local schools and support workforce development programs for youth and adults living throughout the greater Lansing community. All of this and more is made possible through the sound use of taxpayer dollars that do so much for so many people.

The information in this report provides a snapshot of our programs and services and the funds we utilize to support them. We invite you to learn more about our programs and services described on Our Academics page.

Public Relations, Polling, Lobbying, and Legal Services

Intermediate school districts (ISDs) or regional educational service agencies were created by the legislature in 1962 to bring about quality and equitable educational opportunities to students and schools throughout the state. Because public education is funded and regulated by the state and federal government, it is necessary for ISDs to use some resources to fund activities that promote public accountability, research, and government communications. Since Ingham ISD is publicly funded, it is responsible for communicating its programs and services to the schools and community. The guiding principle for all activities of this nature is to advocate for the children we serve.

In the area of public relations provided by external vendors or consultants, there is no information to report for 2016-17.

In the areas of polling and lobbying services provided by external vendors or consultants, Ingham ISD paid Karoub Associates $12,000 for 2016-17.

In the area of legal services provided by the following external firms, Ingham ISD spent $40,358 which is .04% of the total budget for 2016-17:
