ESL/Title III Advisory Council

​​​​​​​​​Members of the Oakland Schools ESL/Title III Advisory Council include representatives from all 28 Oakland County school districts, Oakland Community College, as well as several charter and private non-profit schools. Meeting quarterly, the Council discusses changes to the rules and regulations regarding ESL/Title III Programming, Instruction, and Assessment, and develops strategic plans for implementing these changes to ensure high quality educational opportunities for all English Learners.
