We serve as a statewide liaison between the state and local school districts in implementing the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Model Framework. We believe in educating the educators. We do this by calling on our individual expertise as well as our larger network of experts, working with state agencies, and listening to the individual needs of each school district and teacher.
We believe in equipping children with the skills to stay healthy and be ready to learn for the rest of their lives- We work to help increase the capacity of schools & teachers through facilitating the implementation of evidence-based curricula, such as the Michigan Model for Health as part of a WSCC model framework.
Connecting with Kids Through School Health focuses on the Whole Child. The conference brings together a wide-range of school staff to learn and network around strategies and partnerships that build the social-emotional physical well-being of students to improve academic success.
The Whole Child Quarterly keeps you up to date on the latest work of mishca, the field of Comprehensive Health Education, and relevant Michigan policies. The newsletter is published quarterly.
Knowing that healthy students are better learners, we lead in advancing the needs of the whole child by using the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Model Framework.
We are mishca, a non-profit made up of local experts on the Whole Child (the WSCC Model).
