This past spring, Lee High School students participated in a county-wide survey to determine attitudes and opinions regarding the Michigan high school graduation requirements. Results of this survey at LHS are summarized on a series of 122 slides. Warning: This is a large file that requires a PDF reader. Selecting the link above will open the file in a new window.
Annual Education Report (AER)
August 11, 2011
Dear Parents and Community Members:
We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2010-2011 educational progress for Lee Middle & High 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. If you have any questions about the AER, please contact Mr. David Britten, Secondary Principal, for assistance.
The AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following web site
or you may review a copy from Mr. Britten's office at the middle and high school.
For 2010-2011, Lee High School did not make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) because our sub-group of special education students did not achieve the minimum state standards for proficiency in English language arts. If we do not make AYP for two years in a row, we will be identified for school improvement. To correct this, the school has purchased and is utilizing the Scholastic READ 180 and System 44 programs for extensive reading improvement for special education and other students now reading below grade level in high school.
For 2010-2011, Lee Middle 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.
State law requires that we also report additional information.

Teachers, students, support staff and parents in our middle and high school are to be congratulated for the excellent work you continue to do each year in all academic areas. We should recognize at the same time that we always have room for improvement and our focus will continue to be improving learning at a higher level to ensure our students are well-grounded in content area skills and ready for high school by the time they complete the 8th grade, and fully prepared for college and career by graduation.
It's also important to understand that EdYES!, AYP, and NCLB only measure proficiency in reading and mathematics on one single assessment administered on one day during one school year, and by themselves do not statistically or adequately represent a true measure of overall student achievement or school performance. Our elementary students, despite the highest percentage of limited English proficiency in the county and second highest only to Grand Rapids in percentage of economically disadvantaged, continue to excel at very high levels in all areas of learning.
I look forward to reporting on even greater levels of success in the coming weeks.
David Britten, Secondary Principal
