• Learning & Accountability: Training and Support Networks

    ACOE's Learning & Accountability Services division convenes several networks across the county as a forum for learning, reflection, analysis, and action to support district and school success.

    We operate six networks that serve as professional communities of practice for specialized instructional and educational service. Network participation is open to staff from our 18 member school districts.



    Lead Learner Network

    The Lead Learner Network (LLN) provides a strong professional learning community for district-level instructional leaders, such as Assistant Superintendents, Directors, and Managers from our 18 districts.

    In the LLN, you will:

    • Receive the latest information and guidance in curriculum and instruction at the local, state and federal level so that you can effectively manage programs
    • Sharpen your skills to strategically plan and budget for measurable student success
    • Develop a strong community through shared expertise and time to network with job-alike colleagues from neighboring districts
