LANSING – Michigan’s State Board of Education will take its monthly meeting on the road when it convenes at 9:30 a.m., October 9, at Lenawee Intermediate School District (ISD) in Adrian, MI.

“We want to get out across the state to listen and learn about the education successes and issues people are experiencing,” State Board Co-Presidents Richard Zeile and Casandra Ulbrich said in a joint statement.

“Many times, people – especially educators – find it difficult to come to Lansing during the week to share their thoughts or just listen to the discussions during the monthly State Board meetings,” they said.

While individual State Board of Education members visit schools and meet with organizations throughout Michigan, the members want the State Board as a whole to be equally accessible to the public. In the past year, the State Board of Education has held a monthly meeting in Kent and Wayne counties.

Among the agenda items at the October meeting will be a presentation led by Lenawee ISD Superintendent Mark Haag on its collective work in Michigan’s Transformation Zone.

The meeting will take place in the Lenawee Intermediate School District TECH Center, 1372 North Main Street, Adrian. The meeting is open to the public, with a public comment period beginning around 1 p.m. This meeting will not be livestreamed on the internet. However, a video archive will be available at a later date.
