Michigan and five other states are working with the National Governors Association to develop new strategies for the social needs of students.
Governor Whitmer’s office says the state is one of six that will enter into a program focused on the social and emotional needs of students and their families.
WSJM reports that Michigan’s project is centered on informing and implementing recommendations from Whitmer’s cross-agency, cross-sector Student Recovery Advisory Council.
The Council is identifying strategies for Michigan to ensure students have the tools and resources they need to get back on track. The program will run through March 2022.
