Genesee County School Districts Failed Guidelines

It’s not looking good for several Genesee County School Districts who have failed federal education guidelines in a new report, according to the Flint Journal. There are yearly progress reports through the federal No Child Left Behind standards and a poor rating can lead to forced reforms and restructuring.

Several school districts in this list include Grand Blanc, Fenton, Linden and Swartz Creek, but several say it’s because of low special education test scores including Grand Blanc High School Principal Jennifer Hammond:

‘”Our special education students are) doing better, but it’s the proficiency level set by the state for the whole group where we’re not meeting that benchmark.’”

All of the districts are saying they failed the progress reports because of increasing demands and standards included in federal guidelines. If a school fails to meet the yearly progress for two years or more in a row, it could mean a possible restructure in the school.
