Trustees Focus on Third Grade Reading, Summer Learning

Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education study session (May 17, 2017): Pioneer High School – Cafe Annex – 601 W. Stadium Blvd

The Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) Board of Education (BOE) trustees will vote themselves into executive session at 5:30 PM this evening, discussing a attorney/client privilege item. Last week, the trustees went into an executive session, saying they were working on contract negotiations. Executive sessions are closed to the public.

Tonight’s study session, beginning at 6:30 PM, allows for the trustees to dig deeper into topics. There is no voting involved. Superintendent Jeanice Swift will give an update on the district International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. Both Huron High School and Scarlett Middle School recently received accreditation as IB Middle Years Programme World Schools.

Swift will also give an update on district high schools. Four AAPS high schools earned silver medals in the latest rankings of U.S. News and World Reports 2017 Best High Schools. Community High (64), Huron High (29), Pioneer High (8), and Skyline High (15) are among the top 64 public high schools in the state of Michigan.

In addition to those updates, there will be a preview of  summer 2017 learning, as well as an update on the 3rd grade reading legislation.
