Annual Education Report
June 30, 2014
Dear Parents and Community Members,
I am pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2013-14 educational progress for Reeths-Puffer 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 me at 719-3107 for assistance.
Reeths-Puffer High School students come to us by virtue of living within the boundaries of our district. In addition to resident students, enrollment is open to Schools of Choice students in grades 9-11 where there is pre-determined room. Schools of Choice student applications must be submitted to the superintendent's office during the identified open enrollment window which is communicated through the office of the superintendent.
The AER is available for your review electronically here or you may pick up a copy from my office any time between the hours of 8:00 - 3:00 p.m. when school's in session.
State law requires that we also report additional information on the following interest areas:
- Statusof the school improvement plan
- How to access a copy of the core curriculum
- Number and percentage of students dual enrolled for college coursework
- Number of AP courses offered to students
- Number and percentage of students enrolled in AP courses
- Number and percentage of students receiving a score leading to college credit in AP courses
- Number and percent of students represented by parents at parent-teacher conferences
The state has identified some schools with the status of Reward, Focus or Priority. A Reward school is one that is outperforming other schools in achievement, growth, or is performing better than other schools with a similar student population. A Focus school is one that has a large achievement gap in 30% of its student achievement scores. A Priority school is one whose achievement and growth is in the lowest 5% of all schools in the state. For the 2014-15 school year, our school has not been given one of these labels.
The status of our 3-5 year School Improvement Plan: R-PHS professional faculty uses the following standards as filters for establishing and measuring goals that impact student achievement:
- Vision & Purpose
- Governance & Leadership
- Teaching & Learning
- Documenting & Using Results
- Resource & Support Systems
- Communication & Stakeholder Relationships
- Continuous Improvment
R-PHS has instituted Citizenship the R-P Way which measures students in three critical areas: Attendance, Work Ethic/Time Management and Respect for self and others. This program initiative addresses three non-academic focus areas to assist students in understanding valuable assets in the market place. With an intensive communication plan, we believe student achievement will have a positive correlation to each student's Citizenship score.
R-PHS is a great place to learn, contribute and compete! Our mission is to Ignite Minds and Fuel Futures! We're excited about the potential the 2014-15school year has for our students.
