Academic Goals 2022-23

  • Fraser Public Schools, not unlike districts across the country, continues to face challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic last school year. Some of the most prominent challenges identified include student attendance, development of social emotional skills, and early literacy. Fraser plans to address these areas of concern through district-wide attendance efforts, continued use of Second Step to address social emotional skills, implementation of Restorative Practices with all students in grades Y5s-12, and embedded professional learning in the area of early literacy with a strong focus on phonemic awareness and small group instruction. We will monitor the progress of these efforts throughout the school year through multiple measures and a triangulation of data points. 

    Per the guidance of the Michigan Department of Education and the Federal Government, in order to address these challenges set forth by the COVID-19 pandemic, Fraser Public Schools continues to update the Extended Continuity of Learning plan. One requirement of this plan is for each district to set mid-year and end of year benchmark assessment goals for students in Grade K-8 in reading and math for the upcoming school year. The Benchmark Assessment plan in reading and math outlined below is just one way that we plan to monitor student progress on the aforementioned challenges during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
