Whole Child Definition
Whole Child has been discussed in the Top 10 in 10 goals, the Michigan ESSA Plan, and various other initiatives including Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS). As the department moves to whole child, whole learner focus support, it is imperative that a department definition be defined. After a series of workgroup meetings and feedback session, the following definition and visuals were designed and adopted.
The Whole Child Priority Initiative is sponsored by Deputy Superintendent Kyle Guerrant and supported by Diane Golzynski, Director, Office of Health and Nutrition Services and Paula Daniels, Director Office of Educational Supports.
