Steering Committee

The work of LAC-O involves many people across Oakland County from the superintendents, instructional leaders, teachers, students, and parents. At the Superintendents Retreat in 2010 it was decided to form a regional steering committee for this project to help ensure the work grows and becomes more imbedded into the culture and behaviors of the entire county.

A group of superintendents, assistant superintendents, curriculum directors, special education directors, university staff and educational service agency staff were brought together to form the steering committee.

The committee was charged with: 

  • Setting direction for the Learning Achievement Coalition – Oakland
  • Framing the County Best Practices Conference
  • Recommending national speakers for the county
  • Planning and facilitating the Summer LAC-O retreat
  • Monitoring the progress of the project
  • Completing an annual report and providing communication of the work
