Flanagan To Place Schools Into the State School Reform/Redesign District in 2014
December 10, 2013 LANSING – State Superintendent Mike Flanagan today announced that he will have State School Reform/Redesign Officer Deborah Clemmons place Michigan schools into the State School Reform/Redesign District in 2014, possibly as early as January. Flanagan has said publicly that fewer than 10 schools would be placed into the statewide district  by the end of this year, and that the State School Reform/Redesign Office still was in the process of reviewing which schools should be placed. Michigan law, signed by Governor Jennifer Granholm in 2009, allows these schools to be placed into a State School Reform/Redesign District (SSRRD) if they are not achieving satisfactory results. “Through our vetting process, we are finding that there could and should be many more than 10 schools placed,” Flanagan said. “We want to be certain which schools those should be and whether they are making the satisfactory progress that the law requires of them. “Placing schools in this statewide district is an extraordinary step to take and we want to make sure it’s done right, and every consideration is taken,” Flanagan said. “We will continue to study and verify the systemic and academic progress being made in all of the schools under the authority of the Reform/Redesign Office. By law, all schools in the Bottom 5 percent of schools each year come under the supervision of the State School Reform/Redesign Office. “The schools are given support and opportunity to show improvement.” Clemmons said. “We want them to demonstrate that their improvement plans are having a positive impact and increasing student achievement.” The Bottom 5 percent schools, known as Priority Schools, are given access to online tools and face-to-face technical assistance resources such as
 Next Network, Teaching for Excellence,
 
 Instructional Leadership Academy, Principals Academy
,
 MiExcel,
 and
Technical Assistance  Meetings
, hosted by the Michigan Department of Education. “We will be gathering additional data and monitoring Michigan’s most struggling schools,” Flanagan added. “If we are not absolutely confident that a school is making progress and their students are receiving a quality education, we will place the school into the statewide district.” Under a legal contract with the Education Achievement Authority (EAA), all schools placed into the State School Reform/Redesign District would be operated by the EAA. “The state Legislature has been working for some time on legislation to empower the EAA in state law,” Flanagan said. “We look forward to them getting this done, to provide more clarity on the EAA – for example, how schools would return to their traditional districts.” ###
