Mr. Ackley, Director of the Office of Public and Governmental Affairs at the Michigan Department of Education, paid a visit to Cedar Springs Public Schools on Wednesday, May 1 to see the great things being done in the district. Interim State Superintendent Sheila Alles has made it a priority at the Michigan Department of Education to stay focused on Customer Service. Each member of the MDE Leadership team is visiting at least 5 local districts or child care centers this school year.
When asked why he was paying Cedar Springs Public Schools a visit, Ackley said "we want to highlight and celebrate the great things happening in our education centers, and find out what MDE can do for students and school districts throughout the State." The MDE hopes these visits will aid staff members by helping them see with their own eyes the things that are making a difference to the children in Michigan.
