Governor Snyder will be submitting to the Michigan Legislature later this month, a special message on reinventing Michigan Schools. Visit WAY Program for an example of ways we are transforming education today.
BELLEVILLE, MI - WAY Program (Widening Advancements for Youth) provides youth, for whom the traditional setting does not work, learning opportunities by transforming educational methods and environments. WAY Program has partnered with several Michigan public school districts and ISD's to offer a learning-centered, project based, on-line high school experience that will be expanding into Florida.
Governor Snyder recognizes the need to transform and reinvent public education. WAY Program is doing just that. In the WAY Program, students gain 21st Century learning and citizenship skills. Utilizing a blend of face to face and an on-line environment, this program focuses on connecting learning of rigorous standards to the interests and needs of the students. In the WAY Program, students collaborate and communicate as they will when they enter the work force and higher education. Students take ownership of their education.

Glen Taylor - Co-Founder of WAY Program 'WAY integrates 21st Century skills with Michigan Merit Curriculum and the Common Core Standards to prepare students to become 21st Century citizens, workers and learners.'
