Recently named a “Leader to Learn From” by Education Week, Kathy Fortino will soon retire from her position as Muskegon Area Intermediate School District (MAISD) Associate Superintendent for Special Education and Early Childhood Services. In her role at the MAISD, Fortino also oversees educational programming for the countywide Juvenile Transition Center and You Turn Program for expelled students.
Today, 20 students from the MAISD Transition Campus will be treated to complimentary pre-prom pampering at NUVO College of Cosmetology.

During the month of May children in the Muskegon Area enjoyed a “Little Scholar” experience in the caring homes of their licensed family and group child care providers. The providers, 25 in all, attended free trainings on how to engage children in the use of the free School Zone “Little Scholar” educational tablets that come preloaded with 150 APPS, videos, e-books, and songs with no Wi-Fi needed. The tablets also function as cameras and are Wi-Fi accessible.
