Description:Oakland Schools serves 28 local school districts, a number of public school academies and non-public schools in Oakland County. Every district has a distinct character, arising from its unique community of learners and educators. Yet every one of the 28 districts shares a common goal: providing a quality education to every student. Oakland Schools works with these districts, non-public schools and public school academies to help each one preserve its own unique identity, respect its special needs, and deliver quality educational programs to every student in Oakland County.
Our services, resources and products focus on three key goals:
-Increase student achievement
-Serve diverse needs of schools
-Decrease costs/increase efficiencies
To do this, Oakland Schools works closely with school personnel at every level. We work with referent groups whose members may be superintendents or maintenance workers, bus drivers or teachers. We give every group our full attention, letting their needs dictate many of our services. At other times we serve in a leadership role, sharing the most current and best thinking on many educational issues with local school personnel through consultation, professional development workshops and classes.
