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:

  1. Since Springport High School is the only high school in the district, all students in grades 9-12 in the district attend Springport High 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 ACT and MME may be found on mischooldata.org.
  6. In 2013-2014 42% of parents participated in Parent/Teacher conferences and in 2014-2015 46% participated.
  7. In 2013-2014, Springport High School had 6 students dual enrolled which is equal to 4% of our junior and senior level students. In 2014-2015, we had 9 students or 8% of our junior and seniors level students dual enrolled.
    1. Springport High School offered 4 different AP courses in 2013-2014 (English Literature, Biology, Calculus, Survey of American Government) and 5 different courses (AP Language, Biology, Calculus AB , Survey of American Government, Spanish) in 2014-2015.
    2. In 2013-2014, there were 44 enrollments in AP courses which was equal to 32% of our junior and senior level students. In 2014-2015, there were also 44 enrollments in AP courses which was equal to 37% of the junior and senior level students.
    3. In 2013-2014, out of the 15 students who took AP exams, 6 (40%) scored a 3 or better. In 2014-2015, out of the 19 students who took AP exams, 11 (58%) scored a 3 or better.

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
