Annual Reports

Beginning with the 2009-10 academic year, the State of Michigan has provided families, communities and schools with a comprehensive report of school progress. This Annual Education Report (AER) takes data collected from schools on student achievement and teacher qualifications and presents this along with information on school and district Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) status. Combined with the appropriate building or district Cover Letter, these two documents give a complete report that meets the requirements of the Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) and Michigan's PA 25 of 1990.

These documents may be viewed online or downloaded and printed (warning: some documents are lengthy). Buildings are listed below alphabetically with the full district report at the end. NOTE: Cover Letters have not yet been updated due to changes in the Michigan school improvement reporting process.
