Dear Parents and Community Members:
We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2011-2012 educational progress for the Bark River-Harris Junior High/High School. The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by the 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. Darren Bray for assistance.
The AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following web site: http:www.brhschools.org/ or you may review a copy from the Bark River-Harris Junior High/High School office.
We are proud to report Bark River-Harris Junior High/High School made Adequate Yearly (AYP) for the 2011-2012 school year. While we are pleased to have reached this important goal, we are continuously working to improve our school. We appreciate the continued support of all our stakeholders in this effort.
State law requires that we also report additional information:
1. Process for assigning pupils to the school: This is not applicable to Bark River-Harris Junior High/High School, as there is only one junior high/high school within the Bark River-Harris School District.
2. The status of the 3-5 year school improvement plan: Each fall the staff analyzes the most current MEAP and MME data of the middle and high school to identify areas of improvement and review prior goals in each of the core areas. For the goals, please see the annual report (it is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following web site http://www.brhschools.org/ or you may review a copy from the Bark River-Harris Junior High/High School office).
3. A brief description of each specialized school: Specialized programs include: Delta-Schoolcraft Intermediate School District provides Health Occupations, Automotive Technology, Construction Building/Technology, and Computer Aided Design (CAD).
