Authentic Family Engagement in Michigan

Michigan is one of the seven states awarded a Safe Schools/Healthy Students (SS/HS) grant in 2013 from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Michigan is leading the way in instilling family engagement principles and has a novel but common-sense approach by reframing how staff think about family engagement and infusing guiding principles throughout health and education systems.

Watch this video on how the SS/HS-funded Saginaw Public School District made a full commitment to engaging families by developing true partnerships with parents and family members within the district.
