Department of Education Visits

We had two schools visited by the Michigan Department of Education!

Lake Superior Academy welcomed Ms. Linda Forward, Senior Executive Policy Advisor to Michigan’s Chief Deputy Superintendent at the Michigan Department of Education. Out of over 3,000, LSA was chosen by Ms. Forward for a personal meeting and site visit.

New Branches Charter School welcomed Mr. Martin Ackley, Director of the Office of Public and Governmental Affairs at the Michigan Department of Education. He visited to learn about all of the great things happening and receive feedback about how the MDE can serve their schools better.  Check out a photo of his visit.

These two visits are BIG deals for not only the school communities, but the whole charter school movement. Way to go!
