Quality Connections Ready, Set, Grow!

We are finding more and more from both research and practice about the importance of collaboration and connecting to others. As the education environment continues to be challenged with doing more with less, the MIEM team will continue to focus next school year on helping to make quality connections for and with you.

Effective innovation and true transformation can only take place if we invest in quality professional development. MIEM provides you, and your staff, with the most current and important information on crucial topics affecting education in Michigan. We are excited about helping you to connect so you can best serve the children of our state.

MIEM continues to be a positive partner to the educational community as it enters its 32nd year of operation. The 2013-2014 MIEM Calendar of Events lists a variety of classes and workshops. We will continue to communicate to you through our website, the monthly MIEM Connection, and our timely e-mail messages.

Let MIEM help you get ready, set and grow!

2013 Superintendent Preparation Series Academy Accepting Applications

The SUPES Academy is a comprehensive leadership development experience to prepare individuals who will be the next “class” of superintendent candidates. There will be an unprecedented number of superintendents retiring over the next decade. At the same time, fewer people with the necessary capacity-building experiences are aspiring to move into these critical leadership roles. It is critical that the new superintendents receive the best possible preparation and support available to help ensure success in their new assignments. This is a four-part series and you must attend all four classes.
