Dear Parents and Community Members:

 We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2014-15 educational progress for Springport Middle School. 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 Tanya Overweg, Principal of Curriculum & Instruction 6-12, for assistance.

 The AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following web site springportschools.net or you may review a copy in the main office at your child’s school.

 Key challenges that are being addressed by Springport Middle School include the inconsistency in data at the state level and poor timeliness of reports. To assist with this, Springport Public Schools uses NWEA testing three times per year to provide consistent formative and summative data across all grade levels in both math and ELA. Based on this data and teacher feedback students are identified for additional support or enrichment RTI courses that occur daily. Springport Middle School also offers support services to At-Risk students through additional paraprofessional staff. Springport Schools continues to work with the county to identify, and support those students who are truant in order to return them to school on a regular basis.

 State law requires that we also report additional information:

  1. Since Springport Middle School is the only middle school in the district, all students in grades 6-8 in the district attend the middle school
  2. The School Improvement Plan is revised annually based on the data although the main strategies remain somewhat consistent. The plan is submitted to the district for approval and to ensure the District Improvement Plan incorporates each building plan.
  3. Given the small size of our district, there are no specialized schools.
  4. The core curriculum is posted on the building website and implemented on a daily basis in classrooms as evidenced by teacher lesson plans and classroom observations. It is consistent with that which is required by the State Department of Michigan.
  5. Student achievement results for local competency tests from 2014-2015 show the following

  1. In 2013-2014 90% of Springport Middle School parents participated in parent/teacher conferences and in 2014-2015 84% of parents participated.

We are pleased with all of the efforts made by the Springport staff in working to meet the instructional needs of our students.   We appreciate the effort made by our students and their parents to make student achievement a high priority.  The number one goal of our district is to foster strong academic programs in which each student will progress toward meeting State of Michigan curriculum standards.  Our staff will work to continue to improve the academic proficiencies of all of the students we serve. 

Sincerely,

Tanya Overweg                                                        Chris Kregel
