Annual Education Report
April 22, 2016
Dear Parents and Community Members:
We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER), which provides key information on the 2014-15 educational progress for the Hazel Park Michigan Cyber Academy. The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by federal and state laws. The school’s report contains information about student assessment, accountability, and teacher quality. If you have any questions about the AER, please contact Michelle Laporte for assistance.
The AER is available for you to review electronically here, or you may review a copy in the main office at your child’s school.
Michigan Cyber Academy was created to meet the needs of high school students who have been persistently unsuccessful in trying to complete their education in a traditional manner. We are a strictly online high school, and all courses are completed in the students’ own homes using canned, online programs (primarily Pearson Gradpoint). Our current challenge is increasing the rate at which students regularly work on and complete their classes.
State law requires that we also report additional information:
Michigan Cyber Academy admits all eligible high school completion students ages 16-19 who request this type of schooling.
Our school improvement plan is still in its preliminary stages, as this is a very non-traditional type of school. We welcome participation by any interested students and community members who would like to help our School Improvement Team in their goal of continuously improving Michigan Cyber Academy.
Michigan Cyber Academy serves pupils ages 16-19 who have been persistently unsuccessful in traditional, classroom-based, brick-&-mortar schools. Students are enrolled in on-line Gradpoint, Write-to-Learn, Odyssey, and Edgenuity classes, which they work on at their convenience from locations of their choice. This is especially helpful to students having physical, mental, social, or emotional obstacles to attending on-site classes. Staff is available in the office and via phone and computer, to provide guidance, tutoring, and assistance.
All Hazel Park district schools follow the state curriculum. The curriculum at Michigan Cyber Academy is provided via Pearson’s Gradpoint program, and this curriculum, along with state standards correlations, is available through Gradpoint.
Due to the nature of this program, we do not hold any parent gatherings.
Dual Enrollment / College Credits:
We had no students that were dual enrolled.
We do not offer college equivalent courses.
No students were enrolled in college equivalent courses.
None of our students received scores toward college credits.
Hazel Park Michigan Cyber Academy believes that a high school education should be an achievable goal for all types of students with all types of educational needs. We are committed to helping all students’ dreams of earning a high school diploma become reality.
