Wayne County Go-In Schools
Exciting educational programs for elementary/middle schools
Under the direction of Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano, Go-In Schools (Government Outreach Information Network) was launched to help prepare our children for a healthy and safe life in Wayne County. Since its inception, the Go-In Schools program has educated thousands of elementary and middle school students in healthy eating, internet safety, bully prevention and other topics.
Presentations are done in classrooms, are free of charge, and are approximately 30 to 40 minutes in length. To schedule one or more of the programs, contact Michael Boynton at 313-967-6021.
