Community Partnerships


Montague Area Public Schools are part of several consortiums that provide supporting programs for our students and community. Collaboration among school districts broadens and strengthens services that districts might not otherwise be able to offer.


The Muskegon Area Career Tech Center offers a wide variety of career and technical education programs. Students can earn credits toward graduation requirements in their respective districts while learning highly marketable skills that can lead to lifelong careers. Programs range from construction trades to computer information network systems to machine tool technologies.

The North Service Unit (NSU) is a consortium of local school districts that helps ensure MAPS special education programs are of the highest quality. NSU staff provide oversight, support for teaching staff, and some direct student assistance. They participate in Individualized Education Program Team (IEPT) meetings to assist in programming as well as goal development. Their expertise is effectively used in professional development for regular teachers as well as special education teachers. Scott Green, NSU Director of Special Education, may be reached at (231) 744-4736.


White Lake Area Community Education (WLACE) is also a consortium of  local districts. Community education services include early childhood programs, child care and after school programs, enrichment and leisure programs, senior services, Indian education, family literacy and business and industry programs.
