Historically, South Lyon Community Schools have scored high in relation to both Oakland County and the State of Michigan. We remain one of the top performing districts in Oakland County and the State of Michigan.
South Lyon is above the State of Michigan averages on all 18 assessments and above the Oakland County average in 17 of the 18 assessments. In the one assessment area where our students scored below the county average- third grade mathematics- scores improved 3% from last year.
When compared to 2016 district results, this year’s increased proficient or advanced M-STEP scores occurred in:
- 3rd and 5th grade Mathematics
- 7th grade Science
- 5th and 8th grade Social Studies
Instructional staff and administration will be using individual student scores to target interventions for students along with using school and district level scores to continue to make improvement in our overall programs.
Individual student MSTEP reports will be mailed home on Friday, September 15th. This information has been provided to our teaching staff as well. The data is one piece of information about your child’s progress and we use many pieces of data to make instructional decisions. Proficiency levels change over time and this is only a “snapshot” of where your student was on the day(s) of testing last spring.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s proficiency levels, please contact your school principal or your student’s teacher.
