 Summer School - Elementary

In previous years, our school district has offered summer school for eligible students exiting Grades K, 1, 2 and 3. During the course of the financial audits and analysis conducted to examine our district’s financial situations, it has been determined that we need to re-evaluate our elementary summer school program to ensure it is meeting the academic standards and goals set forth in both our district school improvement plan and our Title I plan.  Therefore, we will not be offering an elementary summer school program this year.  Instead, staff will be revamping the program so that it is better able to meet the academic needs of our children.  It is our intention to offer summer school again in the summer of 2016.  We understand that many of you relied on this program and we are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you.  However, we believe this will give us the opportunity to offer an even better intervention program in the future.  Thank you for your understanding.

M-STEP Testing for Students

In June 2014, the Michigan Legislature required the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) to develop a new test for spring 2015, creating a need to reduce a normal three-year test development process to nine months. We have been working hard to accomplish this and are excited to announce our new assessment system called the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress, or M-STEP.

The M-STEP will include our summative assessments designed to measure student growth effectively for today’s students. English language arts and mathematics will be assessed in grades 3–8, science in grades 4 and 7, and social studies in grades 5 and 8. It also includes the Michigan Merit Examination in 11th grade, which consists of the ACT Plus Writing, WorkKeys, and M-STEP summative assessments in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
