Annual Education Report

April 11, 2016

Dear Parents and Community Members:

We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER), which provides key information on the 2014-2015 educational progress for the Edison MAX Program. The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by federal and state laws. The school’s report contains information about student assessment, accountability, and teacher quality. If you have any questions about the AER, please contact Dr. Michelle Krause for assistance.

The AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following web site https://goo.gl/b1IKZK, or you may review a copy in the main office at your child’s school.

One of the key challenges at Edison MAX is continuity of academics. Many students enter and exit the program throughout the school year, disrupting the continuity of instruction. As a result, achievement in Reading and Math are a focus of our instructional program and our school improvement plan. Several initiatives have been undertaken to improve student achievement in these areas. The ongoing use of Successmaker, which delivers supported instruction in reading and math and is highly individualized for students, has shown success in improving student achievement. The use of NWEA MAP testing, which has begun this year, will be used to help teachers guide instruction by giving them real data to gauge student achievement.

State law requires that we also report additional information. The following summary provides that information.

Students are assigned to Edison MAX through a referral process that begins at the Intermediate School District. Students can be referred from identified districts within Oakland County and referrals can occur at anytime during the school year. As part of the ongoing School Improvement Plan, all students are monitored for achievement in the areas of Reading and Math. The goals set forth in the plan are currently in progress and will continue into the next school year.  Edison MAX is a Center Program, which serves students K-12 throughout Oakland County who are students with emotional and/or behavioral disabilities. The program is a multi-disciplinary therapeutic setting which provides students both academic instruction and therapeutic intervention. During parent Teacher conferences, which were held twice during the school year, 15 students (27%) were represented by parents at those conferences.

We want to congratulate the hard work and dedication of staff, parents and students who work diligently to improve student achievement. As we go forward we have renewed excitement that our students will continue to make gains across the curriculum. New initiatives both instructionally and in assessment will allow teachers to target specific skills and deliver instruction more effectively.

Sincerely,

Dr. Michelle Krause

MSTEP

Dear Parents,

Thank you for allowing Hazel Park to be part of your child’s education. Enclosed you will find the results of your child’s performance on the M­STEP, Michigan’s new statewide exam. As this is the first year of the exam there is little data to support the ranking of your child’s performance. Hazel Park will be using this information to chart progress year to year.

After nearly 45 years of the MEAP, the State of Michigan transitioned to the M­STEP. Many states across the country changed their test last year looking to introduce their students to more rigorous standards. Not only did your child likely take a more rigorous test last year, but took the M­STEP online. Michigan has adopted higher standards for students in English Language Arts and Mathematics, and the M­STEP was built to see how close our students are to reaching them.

This year’s test scores may be lower than results from the MEAP test because the M­STEP is not just new, it’s more challenging. This is not a reflection on Hazel Park students, but on all the progress that has been happening across Michigan. We encourage families to remember that these changes are good for our kids, and to keep them in perspective.

Teachers and parents can use student scores to make sure they’re doing the right things to support students. Working together, we can identify where students excel and where they need additional help, and find ways to better support students. Hazel Park believes that these tests are just one component that we will be using to measure the growth that your child is making year to year.

We will be placing a video produced by the State Board of Education on our website that you can view to give you more information regarding the M­Step. We hope that this, with the scores, you will begin to understand some of the changes that have occurred with the state assessment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM55xZ­ZuNU

We are extremely excited in Hazel Park about the changes we are making in our schools. We are truly excited to begin a new era that focuses on every child’s individual growth and achievement. We look forward to our shared partnering in making a difference in your child’s education.

As always please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Respectfully,

Amy Kruppe, Ed.D. Superintendent
