The Local Assessment and Accountability Advisory Committee (LAAAC) advises the Minnesota Department of Education on assessment, accountability, and technical issues.
The committee consists of superintendents, principals, district assessment coordinators, and district program coordinators, all of whom serve a two-year term. The committee frequently meets jointly with the Assessment Advisory Committee, as their purposes are similar. See link at left for more on this related committee.
Meetings are held on an as-needed basis, in person or via teleconference.
Facts and Information About Ebola
The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is working with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to provide information about the Ebola virus to schools. And though, officials and health experts continue to stress that the risk to Minnesotans is currently very low, Gov Dayton and and MDH Commissioner Ehlinger have convened leaders in the health, human services and public safety sectors to develop prevention plans for our state.
