Oakview Named a "National School to Watch" Again!

Congratulations to Oakview Middle School, the first middle school in Michigan to be recognized as a “National School to Watch” three times – 2006, 2010 and now, 2014.  The distinction comes from the National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform (, which started the Schools to Watch program in 1999.  This organization identifies schools across the United States that meet its criteria for high performance – academic excellence, challenging students to use their minds well; responsiveness, sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescents; and socially equitable, providing every student with high-quality teachers, resources and support.  Oakview has committed to further strengthening its efforts in the above areas over the next three years, whereupon it will have to apply again to keep its status as a National School to Watch. 

Make-Up Days for School Cancellations

Winter weather and power outages have caused cancellations at all Lake Orion Schools beyond the six days allowed by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). There is proposed legislation (HB4295) that may favorably impact the number of days to make-up; however, while this legislation has passed in the House of Representatives, it is still pending in the Senate.

To be on the safe side, the District is assuming all missed days of instruction beyond the six allowed must be made up, and the school year will be extended. (In the event the legislation indicated above passes, we may have fewer days to make-up, and this schedule will be revised with immediate notification sent to parents.) Click here to see the make-up plan for each school.
