What We Do

Principals face many challenges in leading for the 21st century. Transformations in school systems and communities in the U.S. and around the world have greatly expanded the leadership role of principals. MEMSPA and NAESP advocate for the support principals need to be successful 21st century leaders—to achieve the highest results for children, families, and communities.


Project IHSIP

Incorporating Health and Wellness Into School Improvement Plan

What is Project IHSIP?

MEMSPA is in a collaborative effort with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and the Michigan School Health Coordinators Association (MISHCA) to Integrate Health into School Improvement Planning. MEMSPA has recently been awarded a Grant from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund to allow 12 Michigan schools to focus on Student Health and Academic Achievement.  This is a process grant that invites schools to attend to the needs of the whole child. Together, we can make a difference. Click here to read the Health Endowment Fund's announcement.
