The DAWGS program is designed to assist students with academic recovery.
Any student can attend the DAWGS program for academic support in one or more core academic areas with the intention of improving existing grades or to make up hours of instruction missed due to absences from school.

CONNECT is a network of concerned parents with a goal to positively impact the choices our 6th through 12th grade students in our community are making.
This network was originally formed because of concern about the increasing acceptance of pre-teen and adolescent use of drugs (primarily alcohol) as a normal part of growing up. Click here for CONNECT Brochure.

Great Start Collaborative
The Ionia County Great Start Collaborative is a partnership of community leaders, business owners, charitable and faith‐based organizations, health and human service agencies, educators, child care providers, and parents. We firmly believe the first few years of life are the most important in determining a child's physical and emotional health for the rest of their lives. We are committed to establishing and maintaining a comprehensive early childhood system. It is our goal to make sure every young child in our community has a great start.
