Reasonable Assurance:

This is to inform all employees that unless you have previously received a layoff notice, the Jackson County Intermediate School District provides you, in good faith, the reasonable assurance that you will return to work in the same or similar position at the completion of break periods. Your return to work validates your reasonable assurance.

 

Michigan Employment Security Agency regulations prohibits you receiving unemployment benefits from a school district during breaks or a school year when you have a "reasonable assurance" of employment at the end of the break periods.
