International Literacy Association honors Lake Orion school district

The International Literacy Association (ILA) presented Lake Orion Community Schools with its Exemplary Reading Program Award for 2016 at a special ceremony in Boston earlier this month. Each year, ILA recognizes a school district for its outstanding reading and language arts program. The organization was particularly impressed with Lake Orion’s Early Literacy Intervention Program, which has also received County and State awards over the past couple of years. Staff members Tamura Oberle and Jillian Knapp, pictured below, traveled to Boston to accept the award and, more importantly, share their insights on Lake Orion's program with other attendees at the ILA conference.


LO School District recognized for academic success, financial accountability by the State of Michigan

Lake Orion Community Schools has always strove to be accountable to our students, families and the community so it is especially gratifying to have received a special notice from the State’s Department of Education this week, informing us that we are being recognized as one of only 58 public school districts out of 540 across the state as “Notably Successful” in the recent Michigan Education Finance Study.  The report states that Lake Orion has achieved the highest measure for Above Average Academic Performance, plus another standard for High Absolute Performance, Growth or Special Population. In the letter from State Superintendent Brian Whiston, he says “Your district was held as the high water mark in helping determine the financial resources needed to help students be academically successful.” Whiston commended the focus, hard work and commitment of the District’s administrators, School Board, teachers, students, parents and the community to sustain a rigorous, high-quality learning environment.  CLICK HERE to read the letter.
