AutoRama Student Day exposes students to the wide range of opportunities in the industry through speakers, corporate support and event participation. New features for this year included automotive design, engineering, manufacturing, marine, motorcycle, small engine and welding.

Our Career & Technical Education program is being revamped for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please watch for information on the five-day-per-week schedule with classes at your local district and other districts within the ISD. The Vocational Early Middle College options will continue to allow high school students to earn college credit in Welding, Automotive, or Criminal Justice.

Mission Statement

COOR ISD provides programs and services with our partners to support the current and emerging teaching and learning needs of our schools and communities.

Vision Statement

The Vision of the COOR ISD is to be the leader for excellence in the continuum of services supporting programs within the schools and communities we serve.

Strategic Planning

The Board of Education adopted a new mission and vision statements created at the planning session in January 2018. The Administration team is detailing action steps to implement each of the goal statements identified by the group of stakeholders.

Constituent Districts

COOR ISD  includes the counties of Crawford, Oscoda, Ogemaw and Roscommon, an area covering 2400 square miles. Within this area, COOR serves six local public school districts and two Public School Academies (see "District Map" to the right):

The ISD collects and monitors data that is required by the Michigan Department of Education and works with local districts to ensure that the type and nature of services needed within our area are properly represented at the state level.

The services that the ISD provides allow local school districts regardless of size to have access to quality personnel, services and programs that they could not afford individually. This prevents unnecessary duplication and better use of state and local money through the sharing of resources.
