School Improvement

Bartlett Elementary School is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). It is the mission of NCA to promote a system of education that enhances and fosters the love of learning, and prepares students to live and learn in an ever changing and diverse world. NCA challenges schools to be ready for all learners and press them to excellence.

School Improvement Goals
The North Central Accreditation model for school improvement planning requires schools to engage in a process of examining data, setting goals, planning strategies, and assessing the results of those strategies. These are the goals that Bartlett Elementary School chose to target:

Goal 1: All students will improve the use of relevant, accurate details, which show connections and insights that support a main idea in their writing. 
Goal 2: All students will improve the use of reading skills across the curriculum.
Goal 3: All students will improve the use of math problem-solving skills in a variety of contexts.

 Online Back-to-School Registration Information 

As this school year is coming to a close, the elementary schools are planning for the upcoming  school year.  One of the major changes families and students will experience is an Online Back-to-School Process.  Through the implementation of this process, all families will be required to enter emergency contact information.  In addition, families will have the ability to update or change student information, receive important documents, register for school communications and find out student class placement.  

Beginning the week of August 1,  the Online Back-to-School Process will be made available to elementary school parents/guardians through Skyward Family Access.  If you don’t have or don’t know YOUR Skyward Family Access login and password (NOT YOUR STUDENT’S ACCOUNT), please go to:

Click on “Forgot your Login/Password?” and follow the prompts. 

Please watch for a Skylert with Online back-to-School Process information at the end of July or check the Bartlett Elementary School webpage for information: 

Parents will be able to see their child’s teacher September 4, 2020 through the Skyward Family Access, after the Back-to-School Process is complete. 

We hope this will create a more efficient and effective process for families.  This is not to be confused with enrolling a new student.  This process is designed for all currently enrolled South Lyon Community Schools students planning to attend Bartlett Elementary for the new school year.
