Oakland County 6th Annual Best Practices Conference

2014 marked the eighth year for the Best Practices Conference. The conference is a result of collaboration between the Oakland County Superintendents Association and the Teaching and Learning Council. The intention of this conference is to provide a forum where local educators have the opportunity to share programs and services being provided to students that are helping to increase student achievement.


We encourage you to use the LAC-O website as resource for materials, as many of our presenters have shared their presentation materials.
