Annual Education Report

April 12, 2019

Dear Parents and Community Members: We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2018-19 educational progress for the Dexter Community School District and our schools. The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by federal and some requirements of state laws. Our staff is available to help you understand this information. Please contact Executive Director for Instruction Mollie Sharrar for help if you need assistance. 
The District AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following web site https://www.mischooldata.org/AER2019/CombinedReport2.aspx# or you may review a copy in the main office at your child’s school. Each school will also be communicating their own AER to parents directly.

The report contains the following information:

Student Assessment Data – Elementary or middle school assessment results on the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP), high school assessment results on Michigan Merit Exam (MME), and assessment results for students with disabilities on Michigan’s Alternative Assessment Program (MI-Access or MEAP-Access)

Full accountability reporting will resume with the 2015‐2016 AER.

Review the table below listing our schools. For the 2017-18 school year, schools were identified using definitions and labels as required in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). A Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) school is one that has at least one underperforming student subgroup. An Additional Targeted Support (ATS) school is one that has three or more underperforming student subgroups. A Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) school is one whose performance is in the lowest 5% of all schools in the state or has a graduation rate at or below 67%. Some schools are not identified with any of these labels. In these cases, no status label is given.

* Note  hat TSI and ATS definitions were changed for the 2018-19 school year per federal requirements. The new definitions are:

  • TSI – The school has at least one subgroup performing in the bottom 25% within each applicable accountability index component. 
  • ATS – The school has met the criteria for TSI identification and has at least one subgroup performing at the same level as a CSI school.
