    April 2021 Newsletter

    With the mild weather we’ve been enjoying, I have the urge to dig in the dirt. Spring is such an incredible time of rebirth in our region. The ice and snow have melted away. Tiny crocus flowers have poked through the soil. Tulips are beginning to come up. Now is the time I assess what plants and flowers made it through the winter and make a plan for nurturing those plants that experienced some damage.

    Spring is also typically a time for our students to be assessed using summative assessments. The Michigan Department of Education has submitted waivers for the summative assessments and the federal accountability requirements. To date, the U.S. Department of Education (USED) has not waived the requirement for Michigan students to be assessed by M-STEP, PSAT8/9, MI-ACCESS, SAT/MME, and WIDA. The USED has waived the federal accountability requirement, as well as the school identification process.

    So, unless something changes soon, our students will be taking these summative assessments over the next few weeks. Let’s approach the assessments as a tool for measuring student progress but leave the high-stakes pressure out of the equation. Encourage our students to show us what they know so we can develop plans to continue to support them, academically and emotionally. Our students need our nurturing, now more than ever, to flourish.
