Dear Parents and Community Members: 

We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2019-20 educational progress for Woodbridge Elementary School. 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 Michael Dalman, Woodbridge Principal, for assistance. 

The AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following website CLICKING HERE, or you may review a copy in the main office at your child’s school. 

For the 2019-20 school year, schools were identified using definitions and labels as required in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). A Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) school is one that has at least one underperforming student subgroup. An Additional Targeted Support (ATS) school is one that has three or more underperforming student subgroups. A Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) school is one whose performance is in the lowest 5% of all schools in the state. School schools 

are not identified with any of these labels. In these cases, no label is given. 

Our school was given no label. 

Increasing academic achievement among all students and the specific subgroups in our building continues to be our challenge as a building. During the past year we have continued several initiatives to increase the academic performance of students in all grades. Our professional development will continue to focus on our literacy, whole child, and multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) in both the academic and social/emotional/behavioral areas. We continue to address the needs of all students, whether below, at, or above grade level through a response to intervention program we call WIN (What I Need). All students will be provided an intervention period of reading and/or math that will help them to be successful on Common Core State Standards. Our MTSS-Behavior team continues to provide both Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 interventions to help each student feel safe, valued, and loved in a positive learning environment. 

PROCESS FOR ASSIGNING PUPILS TO THE SCHOOL – Students in Zeeland are assigned based upon their geographical home location. After all students are placed based upon this “neighborhood school” concept, school of choice students are placed based upon available spots. 

THE STATUS OF THE 3-5 YEAR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN – Woodbridge Elementary continues to work on our school improvement plan to help our students achieve the necessary skills for success in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. We have also included a goal addressing the whole child to address the social-emotional needs of our students. This plan is available for review on our building web site. 

Our Woodbridge community is committed to educating children for a lifetime  of learning while preparing them to be responsible citizens. 

THE CORE CURRICULUM for our school is based upon the State of Michigan Standards and National Common Core Standards. This information is available at our school office or on our district website. Zeeland Public Schools makes sure our students are provided challenging lessons that are consistent across grade levels. A team of Zeeland educators regularly evaluates and revises our curriculum to ensure that classroom lessons meet state requirements for kindergarten through twelfth grade.

98.8 percent of Woodbridge Elementary students were represented by parents at our parent-teacher conferences. Our building had over 612 volunteers during the 2019-2020 school year for a total of 4826 hours. Due to the COVID pandemic, our building switched to virtual learning in March, but continued to work with students on academic and social/emotional needs. 

Woodbridge Elementary School is proud of our students’ achievement and the quality instruction each student receives in their classroom. As our mission states, “The Woodbridge community is committed to educating children for a lifetime of learning while preparing them to be responsible citizens.” Woodbridge staff, along with the parents of our students, will continue this mission during the 2020-2021 school year! 

Sincerely,

Michael Dalman
Woodbridge Elementary School Principal
