ISD Annual Website Report FY16-17

Oakland Schools welcomes the opportunity presented by PA 413 of 2004 that requires each of Michigan's 56 intermediate school districts to post certain information on our websites by December 31 of each year, beginning in 2006. This section of the Oakland Schools website provides detailed information about who we are, what we do, who we serve, costs, and cost-savings to our constituent districts.

Oakland Schools: Learning Today. Transforming Tomorrow.

In our Continuous Improvement Plan, Oakland Schools lays out six strategic directions that guide the work of the intermediate school district and provide the framework for departmental planning and initiatives:

  • Maximize learning
  • Increase collaborative opportunities
  • Build the capacity for continuous improvement
  • Close gaps and reduce inequities
  • Advocate for public education
  • Foster communication and engagement

Nearly 93% of the Oakland Schools budget in FY 16-17 was focused on direct services to local school districts. The remaining 7% was dedicated to indirect services to the schools we serve. Click here  for more information. Oakland Schools has, upon board approval, posted our monthly financial reports on our website as a transparent way of demonstrating responsible stewardship of taxpayer dollars. 

The data provided by this Annual Website Report tells only part of the Oakland Schools story. We invite you to further explore how we leverage economies of scale with our many products, services, collaboratives and regional resources by reviewing our District Service Report.
