Annual Report (AER)


June 24th, 2021     


Dear Parents and Community Members:


We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the educational progress for the Hagar Township S/D #6.  The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by federal and some requirements of state laws. Our staff is available to help you understand this information. Please contact Riverside School for help if you need assistance.


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


These reports contain the following information:


Student Assessment Data – Includes the following three assessments: M-STEP (Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress), MI-Access (Alternate Assessment), and College Board SAT. Presents assessment information for English language arts and mathematics for grades 3 to 8 and 11, and science for grades 4, 7, and 11, compared to state averages for all students as well as subgroups of students. The report helps users to understand achievement performance within grades and schools, and to make comparisons to district, state, and national achievement benchmarks.


Accountability Scorecard – Detail Data and Status

The accountability portion of the AER includes assessment proficiency and participation rates, graduation or attendance rates, as well as accountability scorecard status.

Teacher Qualification Data

·         Identifies teacher qualifications at district and school levels

·         Reports percentage of core academic classes taught by teachers not considered highly qualified to teach such classes


NAEP Data (National Assessment of Educational Progress)

·         Provides state results of the national assessment in mathematics and reading every other year in grades 4 and 8



I am very happy with our progress but want Riverside to continue to strive to excellence in education for every student.
