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 High 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 High School include the inconsistency in data at the state level and poor timeliness of reports. To assist with this, Springport Public Schools supported the use of the ACT Aspire assessments in grades 7-10. This data assists in the identification of students who are prepared for Advanced Placement and/or Dual Enrollment courses. Springport High School also offers support services to At-Risk students through additional paraprofessional staff and a credit recovery program. 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:
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.
