Annual Ed. Report

February 11, 2021

Dear Parents and Westwood Heights Community Members:

We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2020-2021 educational progress for McMonagle Elementary.  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 Darryl Grace, Principal, for assistance (810) 591-5145.  

The AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the following web site or Westwood Heights’ web site:,6512,1669,80&Common_LocationIncludeComparison=False&Portal_InquiryDisplayType=None or you may review a copy in the main office at McMonagle Elementary.  

Using data found in the AER report, McMonagle Elementary has created a school improvement plan now known as the Michigan Integrated Continuous Improvement Process (MCIP) that addresses raising student achievement in all core subject areas.  McMonagle’s MCIP will identify annual measurable objectives that will serve as strategic targets.  The plan also identifies activities and strategies that will be used to reach those targets.  A key initiative that will continue to be implemented at McMonagle Elementary to increase achievement will continue to use the MAISA units for reading and math.  These curriculum components are being used in grades First – Sixth to drive instruction, and common core assessments will be created to accelerate positive academic outcomes.  

State law requires that we also report additional information.
