The following Points of Pride were presented at the June TSLP Conference in Lansing, Michigan.

Battle Creek Public Schools
9th Grade Bearcat Academy 


The Academy was started as both a solution and a preventative measure due to a high rate of drop outs leading to low retention and graduation rates. Teachers worked on intervention teams that were developed to focus on student success in all core areas.  Teachers also collaborated in subject area Professional Learning Communities.  Take a look at Battle Creek’s presentation to see their growth.
