Ingham Impact Podcast
This is an exciting time to be in education! We are on a journey using a successful educational approach to improve student results. New technology allows educators to proactively use data and identify the needs of individual students. Research is used to make decisions about what we teach and how we teach it. This is how students advance in a system of supports, known as Multi-Tiered System of Supports or MTSS. Watch our amazing team in action!  #InghamImpact

Heartwood School Buddy Day
Learning occurs in many ways, even student to student. Mason High School students come to Heartwood School each year for an event called "Buddy Day". Students team up and engage in activities throughout the day, learning more about one another. The outcomes? Heartwood students work on social interactions, and Mason students gain a better understanding of people with disabilities. These learning experiences are critical to the growth and development of all students.
