Whole Child & Equity Support

What do we do?

The Michigan Department of Education has adopted a continuous improvement process known as MICIP. This process centers around the WSCC Model, a collaboration with ASCD and CDC, which places the individual student at the center of the model. Grounded in the five tenets of the WSCC Model, we provide services to assist our educators in helping students feel healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged.
