The Washtenaw Educational Options Consortium (WEOC) is an organization comprised of the nine local school districts in Washtenaw County. These districts collaborate to provide a range of cost-effective educational options to their students. The WEOC is governed by the WEOC Joint Steering Committee comprised of the superintendents of each local district.
WEOC programs focus on preparing students to be successful and productive in the 21st century, whether they are academically talented or challenged. WEOC offers three programs:
- The Washtenaw International High School, a certified International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program with a rigorous curriculum that adheres to a set of rigorous international standards.
- The Early College Alliance at Eastern Michigan University (ECA@EMU), an early college program that allows high school students to earn up to 60 transferable college credits before graduation from high school at no cost to student or family.
- The Washtenaw Alliance for Virtual Education (WAVE), a highly individualized, hybrid classroom- online program that tailors the academic curriculum to each student’s educational needs.
Each program emphasizes customized, skill based, technology infused, goal oriented education that is tailored to the aspirations and talents of the students. Each program’s operation is collaborative and sensitive to both equity issues and community talent demands.
