Welcome to Menominee Area Public Schools!
The 2015 – 2016 school year will soon be a memory and part of Menominee Area Public Schools’ history. It has been a busy, exciting and challenging year of change for all of us.
As I complete my second year as superintendent, it has been a time of reflection. Menominee teachers, staff, administrators and the Board of Education continue to be hard-working, dedicated Maroons who put kids first. They continue to weather declining enrollment, inadequate funding from the State of Michigan, and many other financial challenges so that all Menominee students can receive a high quality, well-rounded education that will give our students opportunities to meet their goals as 21st Century learners.
We are addressing gaps in learning, instructional practices and other roadblocks that have caused our students to perform less than what we know they are capable of on State and local assessments. I am confident that the changes that we have made in professional development and school improvement where the change is teacher-driven and supported by administrators is making a real difference in how we educate our kids and how they respond to our collaboration and innovation.
