Dear Families,

Welcome back to our beautiful campus for the 2015-2016 school year! I am anxious to partner with you to move the district forward with proactive plans to provide the best quality educational experience for our students. 

Throughout the school year, students will have full days of school on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays while Wednesday’s release time is one hour earlier.  After two very productive Community Conversations this summer, the school board approved this model as a means to help the district implement a system of effective professional learning that supports school improvement, develop skills necessary to raise academic achievement for students, and improve the effectiveness of staff in the system.

Early-release Wednesdays will begin Wednesday, September 9th.  Beaverton Elementary School students will be released at 2:02 p.m. and Beaverton Junior/Senior High School students will be released at 2:10 p.m..

For one hour every week, all teachers and administrators will be engaged in professional learning dialogue centered around student data, student learning, instructional best practices, students instructional needs, curriculum alignment, and instructional and curriculum adjustments to meet student needs.  Principals will have the increased ability to be involved with curriculum and instruction.  Teachers will have the ability to meet, not only with their own grade level or department, but across grade levels or departments resulting in vertical alignment across buildings.  The hour will be uninterrupted, sacred time devoted entirely to increasing student achievement through thoughtful discourse.  Additionally, this one hour creates more predictability for parents in scheduling child-care, doctor’s appointments, and family events.  We are working with our community partners to address child care challenges that this early release may create and developing after school opportunities for students to receive academic tutoring and enrichment.

The school district already includes more instructional hours and minutes than the Michigan Department of Education mandates so this model will not negatively affect students’ instructional time.  Professional learning communities are encouraged by the Michigan Department of Education for Priority Schools and Focus Schools as a researched best practice to most effectively increase student achievement.

Please note slight changes to our schedule below:

Bus Drop-Off @ 7:45 a.m.
Instructional Day @ 8:00 a.m. - 3:02 p.m.
Bus Pick-Up @ 3:02 p.m.

Instructional Day @ 7:55 a.m. - 3:10 p.m.

You will also notice significant improvements to the district’s campus and facilities.  Parents are advised to review the approved traffic flow maps.  Please contact me at or 989.246.3000 for further information.
