Registration is Open for 2024 MANS Public Policy Day!

Nonpublic school administrators are encouraged to participate in the 2024 Public Policy Day at the Michigan State Capitol – an opportunity to engage with the intersection of education policy and legislative decision-making. This event offers sessions where administrators gain insights from experts in the field and most important, the chance to visit with legislators, allowing the opportunity to share concerns and priorities of nonpublic schools. By advocating for the issues facing your schools, administrators can play an active role in shaping policies that affect students, faculty, and the overall educational environment.

We encourage you to attend this event, be proactive toward influencing policy, and foster collaborative relationships that contribute to the growth and success of nonpublic education.

We will once again gather at Heritage Hall, the new wing of the Michigan State Capitol.
