Low Performing Schools Announced

school books apple1 Low Performing Schools AnnouncedIs your child’s school making the grade? The Michigan Department of Education has released a list of 92 underperforming schools.

The schools and districts will have to develop plans to improve, or they could be placed in a statewide School Reform District.

The rankings are based on a federally-approved measure of student achievement and academic growth over the past four years. The list was developed using student testing data for math and reading on the MEAP and Michigan Merit Exam from the 2006-07 through 2009-10 school years.

“The lowest performing schools in the state are in distress,” said state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mike Flanagan in a statement. “Students in these schools are not receiving the education they need and deserve. That has to change and we will work together to bring about that change.”

Flanagan also said some of the higher ranked schools are not adequately preparing students for college.

“We need to improve outcomes for all students across the state, but most especially in our lowest ranked schools,” he said.

Districts with low performing schools have until November 16th to submit improvement plans which must follow one of four federally-required school improvement models:

Transformational Model- Districts would address four specific areas: 1) developing teacher and school leader effectiveness, which includes replacing the principal who led the school prior to commencement of the transformational model; 2) implementing comprehensive instructional reform strategies; 3) extending learning and teacher planning time and creating community-oriented schools; and 4) providing operating flexibility and sustained support.

Turnaround Model- This would include among other actions, replacing the principal and at least 50 percent of the school’s staff, adopting a new governance structure and implementing a new or revised instructional program.

Restart Model- School districts would close the school and reopen it under the management of a charter school operator; a charter management organization; or an educational management organization selected through a rigorous review process. A restart school would be required to enroll, within the grades it serves, any former student who wishes to attend.

School Closure- The district would close a failing school and enroll the students who attended that school in other high-achieving schools in the district.
