Hundreds of Michigan students will be getting personal attention to get ready for school.
The Michigan Department of Education has announced 600 families will take part in the home visitation programs through the Great Start office.
Students involved live in parts of the Upper Peninsula along with Muskegon, Calhoun, Ottawa, Ingham, Saginaw and Van Buren counties.
The legislature approved $2.5 million for the program.
The goals are to improve school readiness and reduce the number of students requiring special education services.
