Statewide Field Team

 The MI Excel Statewide Field Team is dedicated to providing local districts, and the ISD/ESAs
who support them, with the intense support needed to assist them in systemic reconfiguration for the sole purpose of saving the lives of Michigan’s children. We are committed to this vision and will do whatever it takes to support district superintendents and their teams in this critical
endeavor to educate all children and to demonstrate to others that public education is viable and is capable, if it chooses to, of successfully serving all children in a culturally proficient
environment regardless of who they are, how they identify themselves, where they come from, or what type of family support they have or do not have.
