Partnering with the Michigan Department of Education to ensure meaningful engagement with stakeholders of education.
MDE wanted to design the State’s plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) with input from a wide variety of stakeholders. MDE retained PPA to assist in gathering stakeholder input for the State’s ESSA plan, and provide research and communications support for the implementation process. Part of this work includes engaging parents in designing the new Transparency Dashboard. This partnership is made possible by funding from the Steelcase Foundation and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
