Together We Are MiCoOp - Leading Education in Michigan

The Michigan CoOp is a network of school districts that are early adopters of successful, efficient, and effective learning models. Districts leverage each other’s strengths to create new opportunities for student learning and engagement. Cooperation and sharing of resources between districts allows each district to successfully offer their own unique program options for their students. Through collaboration, the MiCoOp can offer initiatives that districts could not accomplish on their own.

We believe:

  • whether students learn is what’s essential; not where, when or how they learn
  • students are unique and are entitled to their own individual learning plan
  • students need/want a menu of synchronous and asynchronous options that span brick-and-mortar, online, and community involvement
  • true cooperation (vs. competition) benefits districts, students, and teachers

Our voice together is bigger than any of us individually.

The MiCoOp forces me out of my comfort zone and to look at education from a different perspective.

"Innovation is risk-taking. It's really important to network with similar risk-takers because they have similar struggles and successes."

MiCoOp Superintendent

I get inspired and encouraged each time we are together. Impossible is not a word from this group.
