Back to School: Staying Student Focused
The beginning of the school year is an ideal time to recalibrate and bring into focus one thing we can all agree on—we do this work to help students succeed. Join colleagues from across Michigan to explore key areas of connection between Boards of Education and students including mental health, data and student voice. The session will close with an opportunity for attendees to engage with the ideas and individuals they encountered throughout the day.
