Did the Lansing School District Make the Grade?

By  | 

Report cards for High Schools across the state are out and educators are finding out if their students are making adequate yearly progress. It's the second installment since the federal government started requiring the assessment as part of the No Child Left Behind Act.

Lansing's Sexton High School maintained its "B" rating while Eastern High got another "C" mark. Everett High School moved one step up receiving a "B." The grades are good but none of Lansing's three high schools made adequate yearly progress, another part of No Child Left Behind.

According to Michigan's Department of Education, 436 high schools missed the adequate yearly progress mark due in part to additional requirements.
