What is Student Engagement?
Student engagement is an outcome created by the coming together of student, teacher, school, and community factors. Oakland Schools supports a variety of professional learning, coaching and other resources for district students and staff. The goal:
To optimize student engagement in support of high levels of learning
The Learning Achievement Coalition-Oakland County (LAC-O) was created to improve achievement for all students while eliminating achievement gaps wherever they exist, especially students of color, students from poverty and non-traditional learners. LAC-O is a collaboration between the twenty-eight school districts in Oakland County Michigan, Oakland Schools (Intermediate School District), Oakland University, and the University of Michigan dedicated to improving achievement for all students, especially students of color, students from poverty and non-traditional learners. Together we seek to provide access to high quality curriculum, effective instruction and engaging learning environments for all students. LAC-O has four committees: Math, Literacy, Early Childhood and Student Engagement. The LAC-O Student Engagement Committee is engaged in the following activities:
