School Annual Education Report (AER) Cover Letter
April 27, 2018
Dear Parents and Community Members:
We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2016-17 educational progress for Kreeger Elementary. 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 Jason Miller at 517-223-6340 for assistance.
The school AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following web site https://goo.gl/GxKg43 or you may review a copy in the main office at your child’s school.
For the 2016-17 school year, schools were identified using new definitions and labels as required in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). A Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) school is one that has at least one underperforming student subgroup. An Additional Targeted Support (ATS) school is one that has three or more underperforming student subgroups. A Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) school is one whose performance is in the lowest 5% of all schools in the state. Some schools are not identified with any of these labels. In these cases, no label is given. Kreeger Elementary was not given any of these labels.
State law requires that every school report additional information. The key challenge for Kreeger Elementary is closing the achievement gaps in all subjects. Our main goal is closing this gap while also raising student performance across all three grades we service. We routinely monitor student progress, and the NWEA assessment was added to the school calendar in 2015-2016 school year. The building has increased the amount of additional support we provide to students in reading and math. We have worked with Washtenaw Intermediate School District and Livingston Educational Service Agency (LESA) to create and implement strategies to further student success and build sustainable learning systems based on building data.
Enrollment for Kreeger Elementary is coordinated through a district wide registration process. Students are assigned to our school from our feeder school (Smith Elementary K-2). Students are then put into classrooms based on
availability, academic need, gender, and demographic factors to ensure each classroom is well balanced for the learning needs of all students.
