Annual Education Report
2014-2015

 

April 7, 2016

 

Dear Parents and Community Members:

 

I am pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2014-15 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 for assistance.

 

The AER is available for you to review electronically here or you may review a copy in my office.

 

Our focus for school improvement has two goal areas:

      A.  Literacy in Reading and Writing

      B.  Critical Thinking

 

Student data informed us that professional development in the areas of literacy and critical thinking goal areas would equip staff relative to constructing instructional strategies to improve student achievement in reading, writing and thinking critically.  These strategies address achievement gaps for our special needs students as well as economically disadvantaged students.

 

State law requires that we also report the following additional information.

 

1.  PROCESS FOR ASSIGNING PUPILS TO THE SCHOOL

Residents outside Reeths-Puffer Schools’ attendance area may apply to enroll in the District.  Parents obtain a Schools of Choice application from the Superintendent’s Office and return it by the Friday before Memorial Day.  When considering student assignments, students are placed based on available space and the best placement to meet their individual needs.  We accept students at all grades, except 12th grade, in all programs.
 

2.  THE STATUS OF THE 3-5 YEAR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN
 

The high school will host the Internal Peer Review Committee in early May to share goal results in the areas of:

   A.   Literacy in Reading and Writing

   B.  Critical Thinking

   C.  Communications
 

3.  A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF EACH SPECIALIZED SCHOOL

There are no specialized schools affiliated with Reeths-Puffer Schools.
 

4.  IDENTIFY HOW TO ACCESS A COPY OF THE CORE CURRICULUM, A DESCRIPTION OF ITS IMPLEMENTATION, AND AN EXPLANATION OF THE VARIANCES FROM THE STATE’S MODEL

6.  IDENTIFY THE NUMBER AND PERCENT OF STUDENTS REPRESENTED BY PARENTS AT PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES

Conference attendance at Reeths-Puffer High School is Low.  For the 2015-16 school year 391 or 34% of parents attended Parent/Teacher Conferences.  With real-time grade reporting online combined with our recently created app, our parents have access to grades, attendance and teachers at the touch of their thumb.  We pride ourselves in constantly improving communications with our parents and community members.
 

7.  FOR HIGH SCHOOLS, ONLY ALSO REPORT ON THE FOLLOWING:
 

THE NUMBER AND PERCENT OF POSTSECONDARY ENROLLMENTS (DUAL ENROLLMENT)
2013-14 (5 in fall and 3 in winter)

2014-15 (4 in fall three in winter)


THE NUMBER OF COLLEGE EQUIVALENT COURSES OFFERED

AP: 2013-14 = 13

AP: 2014-15 = 13


THE NUMBER AND PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS ENROLLED IN COLLEGE EQUIVALENT COURSES
AP: 2013-14 = 97 students (8%)

AP: 2014-15 = 99 students (8%)


THE NUMBER AND PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS RECEIVING A SCORE LEADING TO COLLEGE CREDIT:
2013-14 = 54 students (40%)

2014-15 = 56 students (35%)

 

We are very proud of our students and our professional staff works very hard to meet the diversity of needs within our student body to leverage individual success for all.

 

Sincerely,
