Dr. Michael Favor
Purposeful.  Personalized.  Partners.

Greetings! My name is Dr. Michael Favor, and I am proud to have joined ISD 917 as Superintendent in July 2021. Upon my arrival, I was warmly welcomed by the community, and I am honored to lead this incredible district.
As our new district motto states, we act with purpose to personalize learning environments and programs for our students, and we partner with each other, families, our member districts, and the community to meet their needs.
ISD 917 serves as a lighthouse for our students, their families, and our member districts.  In times of calm, we are strong and inviting.  We provide inspiration and draw people to our beauty.  In times of storm, we provide light and guidance so others can find their way.  We stand strong because our foundation is solid and our purpose is clear. 
Equity is at the heart of our work in ISD 917, and we recognize many aspects of equity that impact who we are, what we do, and how we do it.  We seek out diverse voices to collaborate to achieve our vision of modeling an innovative culture with diverse pathways serving students and families through equitable practices with highly trained staff.
At ISD 917, we belong to each other. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and be a part of our community.
