School Improvement and Advanc-Ed Accreditation

 

Continuous school improvement has been mandated in Michigan for many years.  To help us meet our continuous improvement mandate, Frost has a School Improvement Team (SIT) that is composed of parents, teachers, department chairs, counselors, and administrators.

Our SI team has multiple tasks, primarily composed of four items:

  1. The creation and implementation of a School Improvement Plan that is designed to improve our students' achievement in reading, writing and mathematics.
  2. Maintenance of the Standards Assessment Report (SA or SAR), which is a detailed set of reporting standards regarding all aspects of school supervision, curriculum, technology, and data management. The analysis required to prepare the document assist us in focusing our continuous improvement efforts.  Frost has earned high scores on this report, and is diligently working to improve our scores to "highly proficient" in all areas. 
  3. Completion of the Program Evaluation Tool, which is an in-depth study of the efficacy of a program that we use to improve student success at the school. 
  4. Conducting professional development for all staff members to improve our capability to create and maintain high standards for the entire school.

Our school improvement team (SIT) steering committee is committed to continuous improvement.  Each fall, we conduct PD sessions, adjust and implement our state-mandated school improvement and accreditation action plan, and conduct our first of three departmental formative assessments for the year.  During the remainder of the year, we also ensure that the following items are completed: the annual Standards Assessment Report (SAR), the Program Evaluation Tool, and additional staff professional development related to our action plan.

The SI team welcomes the participation of parents and community members. If you are interested in assisting in the accreditation process or would like to volunteer to participate on any school committees, please contact the school at (734) 744-2670.
