News from the Michigan Department of Education:

As in the past two years, State Superintendent Brian Whiston is having the Office Directors at the Michigan Department of Education visit school districts across Michigan this school year. Districts may receive an email from an MDE Office Director who is asking to visit your district. The MDE asks that you please welcome them and take advantage of the opportunity to highlight your district, your schools, your educators, and your students.

These are positive visits where MDE wants to see the innovative and positive programs districts are employing to make a difference to the students in our schools. The visits also provide an opportunity for districts to share with MDE any ways that it can break down challenges and barriers to teaching and learning.
