The purpose of the Michigan School Improvement Facilitators Network (MSIFN) is for facilitators to be updated on a regular basis regarding:

  • Legislative Educational Issues;
  • Michigan Department of Education Initiatives;
  • Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Issues; and
  • School Improvement.

Participants become aware of a variety of Professional Development opportunities throughout the state and meet valuable contact people as they network with others who have similar professional goals.
