2014-2015 Annual Education Report

 

 

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 Middle 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 from my office.

 

At Reeths-Puffer Middle School, our mission is Reaching Higher.  We work to continuously improve the quality and delivery of our core curriculum so that all students can achieve at high levels.  Our work refining formative assessment practices allows data to drive decisions about programs and instruction. Additionally, in support of rigorous core curriculum, rich in problem solving and critical thinking, we have employed strategies to support the mindsets and characteristics that enable students to reach their full potential.

 

State law requires that we also report 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 in all programs.
     
  2. THE STATUS OF THE 3-5 YEAR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN
    The School Improvement Team has worked to establish and lead the building toward its reading, writing, and math goals. The School Improvement Team will continue to work closely with the staff to respond to the data around student learning.
