Individual Fenton schools meet requirements, but didn't meet AYP as a district. Lake Fenton met AYP as a district, but the high school failed to reach the mark.
Today the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) released its school report cards, which includes the list of schools meeting state standards through Adequate Yearly Progress. Fenton Area Public Schools failed to meet AYP requirements for the second straight year, while Lake Fenton Community Schools made the cut. While all individual Fenton schools passed AYP, the district failed to pass because of the graduation rates of two subgroups, economically disadvantaged students and students with disabilities. Lake Fenton passed as a district, but the high school failed to meet requirements for participation of economically disadvantaged students. Neither had any schools listed as "reward schools" - a new designation from the state - meaning they…

Lake Fenton Middle School hosts presentation of highest MEAP scores in the county.
When Laura Tyrrell moved her family from Utica Schools to Lake Fenton schools last year she had no idea what to expect. After seeing a presentation Thursday at Lake Fenton Middle School about the sixth, seventh and eighth-graders earning the top ranked MEAP scores in Genesee County, she was elated. “It’s phenomenal,” she said. “I see the college bells and whistles.

Here is a look at the MEAP results for Lake Fenton Community Schools in 2010 and 2011.
Here is a brief look at the MEAP results for Lake Fenton Community Schools. If scores look a little lower than normal, there is a reason for that. The career- and college-ready MEAP cut scores were instituted this year to better reflect how well schools are preparing students for success at the next grade level and whether all Michigan students are progressing at a level sufficient for them to be career- and college-ready when they complete their high school education. These more rigorous cut scores have been applied operationally for the first time to the fall 2011 MEAP results being released today; however, the career- and college-ready cut scores have also been retroactively applied to MEAP results from prior years to facilitate …

Middle school students celebrate start of holiday break with talent show.
Lake Fenton Middle School Principal Dan Ferguson has dressed up as a chicken, danced in a hula skirt and done many other crazy antics for his students.

Michigan and 45 states across the country brace themselves for rigorous curriculum requirements for K-12 classrooms.
In preparation for sweeping changes to school curriculum, Lake Fenton teachers are among those working to modify lesson plans so that they are in step with new academic standards approved statewide. For instance, in some schools most ninth-graders, who might normally take Algebra, will take a new course called Secondary Mathematics 1, or an honors version of that course, which will include concepts in algebra, geometry, statistics, and pre-calculus. Language arts, meanwhile, will also be heavily revised to include more complex reading, and more emphasis on persuasive writing. Lake Fenton hasn't made any concrete changes, but Lake Fenton Superintendent Wayne Wright said teachers are currently meshing current curriculum with the Common Core …
