AER Report Dear Parents and Community Members: We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the annual educational progress for Haigh Elementary School. The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by federal and state laws. The school’s report contains information about student assessment, Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and teacher quality. The AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following website http://dearbornschools.org/downloads/cat_view/120-annual-education-reports.
Haigh Elementary School made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in English Language Arts and Mathematics. While we are pleased to have reached this important goal, we are continuously working to improve. We appreciate the continued support of parents, staff and our community in this effort. The effort toward continued improvement is constant as we strive to do the very best job that we can possibly do.
State law requires that we also report additional information. School districts in the state of Michigan have a process through which they assign students living within their district to schools. Students in the Dearborn Public Schools are assigned to neighborhood schools based on Board of Education-adopted boundaries. Haigh Elementary students live in these board-determined boundaries.
School Improvement Planning is a continuous process at Haigh. Students, staff and parents participate in a review of student data and a goal setting process to determine and specify annual areas of focus in Reading, Writing and Math. In addition, the Dearborn Public Schools has been awarded unconditional district-level accreditation through the North Central/Advanc-Ed Accreditation Association. This accreditation rating is in effect through 2018. The state of Michigan develops and reviews a curriculum framework that outlines expectations for student performance and describes the knowledge and abilities needed to be successful in today’s society. Each district then uses this framework to develop a standard’s based curriculum.
A copy of this core curriculum for the Dearborn Public Schools is available
through the Department of Instructional Services at http://dearbornschools.org/instructional-services .
Students in grades 3-5 participated in Michigan Educational Assessment Program. Student MEAP results are available for review at https://www.mischooldata.org/ .
We are proud to share that well over 95% of families attended parent-teacher conferences. Many of our students had at least one parent attend a conference at some point during the school year. Parents also joined us at many other events this year. The entire Haigh community looks forward to opportunities to learn and celebrate together. We appreciate all team members and are fortunate to have continued support and effort.
Please consider joining our wonderful P.T.A. as they help our students in so very many ways. Our P.T.A. is the best around.
