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.
