State Superintendent Announces the Launch of Top 10 Strategic Education Plan’s Promising Practices Exchange
August 11, 2022
LANSING – School districts across Michigan will be able to learn from each other about ways to achieve the goals of Michigan’s Top 10 Strategic Education Plan, State Superintendent Dr. Michael Rice announced today.
The Top 10 Strategic Education Plan, developed by education stakeholders across the state and approved by the State Board of Education in August 2020, is Michigan’s plan to improve public education for Michigan students. Today, Dr. Rice and the Michigan Department of Education launched the plan’s Promising Practices Exchange.
The Promising Practices Exchange was developed so intermediate school districts (ISDs) and local school districts, both traditional public school districts and public school academies (PSAs), can share and view promising practices specific to Michigan’s Top 10 Strategic Education Plan goals.
MDE is currently soliciting promising practices related to Goal 2 of the Top 10 Strategic Education Plan: Improve early literacy achievement. The opportunity for local districts to submit promising practices for Goal 2 is available from August 11 to October 14, 2022.
“Educators, families, and students across Michigan will benefit from this sharing of knowledge, experience, and ideas,” Dr. Rice said. “We are excited to share this new platform with the education community.”
“Across the state, there are strong, evidence-based practices associated with improved student achievement,” Dr. Rice said, “We encourage educators to take the time to share and learn from this great work on the Promising Practices Exchange.”
Academic subject experts review and assess submitted practices before inclusion on the Promising Practices Exchange to ensure that the practices demonstrate improvement.
MDE is partnering with the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators (MAISA) in developing the Promising Practices Exchange.
“MAISA is excited about our partnership with MDE and the launch of the Promising Practices Exchange to support Michigan’s Top 10 Strategic Education Plan,” said Dr. John Severson, executive director of MAISA. “Empowering schools to implement evidence-based strategies and share how they are successful in real-world practice gives schools critical information to strengthen their improvement efforts and, ultimately, student outcomes.”
Dr. Rice continued, “I want to thank the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators (MAISA) for partnering with us in developing the Promising Practices Exchange. Through this partnership, we have created a user-friendly, public-facing platform that will bring educators together to support one another for our kids.”
