How to Verify Legal Entity Name of Public School

How do I verify the legal entity name of a public school? The school wishing to borrow has bylaws that state they are a corporation, however, they are not registered with the state of Michigan.

by John Burnett: School districts and other government entities typically don't have registration requirements. The By-Laws of the school and any website it maintains ought to be sufficient for your purposes, I believe.


by Kathleen Blanchard: It is also unusual for a single school to borrow. Generally financing is handled at the district/board level. You should be certain that the school has the authority to borrow and funding to repay.
