General Education

Every Child, Every Classroom, Every Day

Working with local principals, and enlisting regional and statewide partners, COOR ISD (Crawford, Ogemaw, Oscoda & Roscommon counties) coordinates and offers professional learning opportunities to support our teachers and administrators. Our mission is to ensure ALL students achieve success by supporting the implementation of high quality curriculum, instruction, and assessment.

While enhancing instructional knowledge and new research supported strategies intentionally frame our offerings, the heart of each workshop is found in the opportunity for professional educators to gather around a common topic. By networking together, teachers learn from and offer support to one another while they courageously implement new learning to increase student achievement.

      As schools plan for Return to Learning in Fall, 2020, there are a number of considerations they must decide. Many of these considerations involve practices, procedures, and policies that apply to all learning, whether students are in class face-to-face, are learning remotely, or some combination of both. We are in a position right now where we need to make contingency plans as soon as possible to communicate with students, families, and staff, yet many unknowns can (and likely will) impact those plans as the summer progresses.


      Acknowledging the power in collaborating in the development of these plans, the Superintendents have decided to have 2 representatives from each district participate in these COOR-wide Committee Meetings. Superintendents, if the representatives you'd like to attend are not  currently on this invitation, you can add them as Guests on this Calendar Event.

      The main goals of these meetings are to:
      1. Develop a shared understanding of the most current information, guidance, and resources about Return to Learning so that each district is planning with common expectations
      2. Develop a shared understanding of the structure and suggested use for the planning tools created and shared by COOR, NMLC, MAISA, and MDE (as it becomes available) to be taken back to support the work of district planning teams
      3. Share questions, ideas, and plans for Fall between districts to ensure as much consistency as possible in our Return to Learning Plans while honoring the unique resources, needs, and concerns of each community.
      4. Identify and plan to support common needs across districts for resources and/or professional development that can best be met collaboratively through COOR ISD.

      Between meetings, district representatives are expected to take these resources back to their local district to facilitate their Return to Learning Plan development. As availability allows, Adair or others from COOR can join your local meetings when requested for support, but the goal is to equip the district reps to do this independently as much as possible.

      The first meeting will focus on Goal 1, introducing the resources for Goal 2, developing a local timeline for plan development, and guiding district representatives in the identification of local district team members to invite for their local planning process.

      During the next 2 meetings. in addition to updates (if available), district representatives will dive more deeply into the resources and begin goals 3 and 4 based on the direction their district plans are developing. There will be significant time during these meetings devoted to sharing between districts to encourage collaboration and sharing of ideas and common practices. 

      The July and August meetings are intended as opportunities to check in on plans and receive updated information coming out of Lansing (if available). June 29 is tentatively scheduled in case there are updates or teams need more time to meet.
