Only 20 percent of schools across the nation were deemed as bronze schools - this is a great honor. It's based on the fact that Laker students performed better than the state average on the 2012-13 Michigan Merit Exam reading and math assessments. The performance of economically disadvantaged students was factored in, as well.
Laker Elementary ranks in the Top 5 percent statewide, according to Bridge Magazine (a publication by The Center for Michigan). The school is number 25 out of 653 elementary schools. The ranking is based on state test scores from 2011-13 and on free/reduced lunch figures. In addition, Lakers (as a district) ranks in the top 22 percent statewide (number 112 out of 507 districts).
The Laker Secondary School received a Michigan School Wellness Bronze Award for the work the school does every day to promote healthy living for students. The School Wellness Award (SWA) recognizes schools that are making significant policy and environmental improvements related to healthy eating, physical activity and tobacco-free lifestyles. It is sponsored by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services in collaboration with the Michigan Department of Education, United Dairy Industry of Michigan, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Action for Healthy Kids and the Michigan Health and Wellness Education Workgroup.
One of the valuable wellness services provided at Laker Secondary School is the Laker Wellness Clinic. The clinic is a partnership between Laker Schools and Scheurer Healthcare Network. The clinic opened during the 2013-14 school year.
Laker Schools is one of only 30 districts across Michigan to receive a perfect fiscal indicator score of zero from Munetrix.
Lakers is the only school in the Upper Thumb to receive this recognition. Munetrix has data on all of Michigan’s 500-plus public school districts and 300 charter schools. Therefore, the 30 districts on the perfect score list represent only four percent of the total number of districts. Munetrix provides financial transparency data for schools and municipalities and provides financial reports to the public –through charts and graphs – so taxpayers know how money is being spent.
The perfect Munetrix scores are based on the latest available Michigan Department of Education data and consider a variety of factors, such as operations performance, enrollment trends and fund balance status.
