Based on Public Law 306 (October 2016), third grade students who are more than a year below grade level on the state ELA assessment are under consideration for retention in third grade.  Dearborn Public Schools staff in elementary schools have been systematically planning to ensure that teachers have the training to teach reading effectively and that students receive small group instruction based on their needs.  The current year second graders are the first group to potentially be impacted by the legislation.
You are invited to join the district task force to strengthen the planning process and to ensure that the community is informed and engaged in the success of every student.
If you would like to participate, please click here to complete the survey.

Welcome back, and I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! We had so much fun playing outside in the snow this morning, the snowflakes were so big and fluffy! If you have not done so already please send your child’s snow gear back to school so they can use it during outside time.


Have a great afternoon!
