Schools received grades on CAP Report Card through Mackinaw Center for Public Policy

(SANILAC COUNTY) — The Mackinac Center for Public Policy released a new report card last week ranking 2,246 elementary and middle schools across the state. The “Context and Performance Report Card” takes into account student poverty levels and relies on several years of state test scores to provide the most accurate picture of school performance. Three years’ worth of Michigan Educational Assessment Program scores, from 2012-2014, in several subjects were adjusted based on the percentage of students who qualified for a free lunch. In Sanilac County, Frostick Elementary School in the Croswell-Lexington School District was at the top with an “A” grade and ranked 93rd among the 2,246 schools in the state. Brown City High School, Meyer Elementary in the Cros-Lex District, and Deckerville Elementary School all received an “A” and ranked 178th, 186th, and 193rd respectively in the state. Sanilac County Schools that received a “B” grade were Deckerville High School, Brown City Elementary, Cros-Lex Middle School, Marlette Jr./Sr. High School, and Carsonville-Port Sanilac Elementary. Rounding out the schools in Sanilac County, Marlette Elementary, CPS High School, Peck Jr./Sr. High School, and Peck Elementary each received a “C” grade on the report card. This is the second such report by the Mackinac Center for elementary and middle schools. The first was published in 2013.
