LSEA- Ebersole Environmental Camp Option:

Lansing School District and LSEA has come to an agreement regarding the "Ebersole Environmental Camp Option". This option allows participating LSD teachers, and their specific school, a second option to the stipend obligation agreed upon in the union contract. In lieu of the stipend, teachers can opt to take "one day leave with pay", often referred to as a 'personal day', for each nights stay at the Ebersole Environmental Center.  We hope this will be helpful for teachers and principals to bring their classes to Ebersole Center.
