Annual Reports

August 14, 2014
Dear Parents and Community Members:

We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2013-2014 educational progress for Hazel Park Adult & Alternative Education - Nine Mile building.  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 Kathy Andre for assistance.

The AER is available for you to review electronically  at MiSchoolData via the link below, or you may review a copy in our office at 420 W. Nine Mile.

The state has identified some schools with the status of Reward, Focus or Priority. A Reward school is one that is outperforming other schools in achievement, growth, or is performing better than other schools with a similar student population. A Focus school is one that has a large achievement gap in 30% of its student achievement scores. A Priority school is one whose achievement and growth is in the lowest 5% of all schools in the state.

Our school is not currently listed as a Priority, Focus, or Reward school. We will still be monitored by the state.

Hazel Park Alternative School faces the challenge of educating students from a wide variety of educational backgrounds in a very small setting. To make this possible, we have chosen to provide most of our classes in an online format, to allow for a high degree of personalization in scheduling. As many of our students are below grade level in Math, we offer online math classes in a math lab setting, facilitated by a retired math teacher with years of experience. As many of our students also come in below grade level in reading, we are in the process of creating classes that provide remediation in reading while still meeting all state content expectations.

State law requires that we also report additional information:

  1. Hazel Park Adult/Alternative  admits all eligible high school completion students who apply.
  2. Our school improvement plan is a living plan, which is constantly adapting and evolving to reflect current realities and maximize positive changes. Many of the strategies that were previously created are already well underway, and additional goals and strategies (based upon new feedback and research) are currently in the process of being implemented. We welcome participation by any interested students and community members who would like to help our School Improvement Team in their goal of continuously improving Hazel Park Adult & Alternative Education.
  3. The Hazel Park Alternative School (Nine Mile) is for pupils ages 16-19 who were not successful in the traditional school setting.  Smaller class sizes,small school atmosphere, and more opportunities for individual attentionand counseling help these students to succeed.  Students are given the opportunity to take a wide variety of classes through our on-line GradPoint,Write-To-Learn, Odyssey and Edgenuity  programs.
  4. All Hazel Park district schools follow the state curriculum. Documentation is available via the district website, at hazelparkschools.org.
  5. Student performance on all state assessments is available via the school dash board on the state’s MiSchool Data website.
  6. Parents of our students have, so far, been unable to attend any regularly-scheduled Meet-the-Teacher events or conferences. We offer individually-scheduled meetings with parents at their convenience.
  7. Dual Enrollment:
    1. We had no students that were dual enrolled.
    2. We do not offer college equivalent courses.
    3. No students were enrolled in college equivalent courses.
    4. None of our students  received scores toward college credits.

Hazel Park Adult & Alternative takes great pride in our students’ determination to overcome the obstacles that stand between them and success in completing their education. We are committed to helping their dreams of earning a high school diploma become reality.
