2013-2014 Reeths-Puffer Intermediate
Annual Education Report
August 13, 2014
Dear Parents and Community Members:
I am pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2013-2014educational progress for Reeths-Puffer Intermediate 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 the school office for assistance.
The AER is available for you to review on this web site or you may review a copy in the office of the school.
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 2013-2014 school year, our school has not be given one of these labels.
State law requires that we also report additional information.
