State Champs: See how your local district ranks

Fifty-two Michigan public school districts and charters were named Academic State Champions for the 2011-12 school year. Winners were drawn from a database created by Bridge Magazine and Public Sector Consultants of traditional public school districts and charter schools offering kindergarten through 12th-grade. The analysis ranks schools by how much value they add to students’ expected achievement.

How to read the chart: A Value-Added Matrix (VAM) score of 100 indicates a school’s students are achieving at expected levels for their income level; the higher the score, the better a school’s students are performing on standardized tests. (Downloadable PDF with complete results.)

    “Lawton Community Schools in the hearts and heads of everyone when it comes to educating our children. Lawton is the right place for making a better tomorrow today by enhancing the lives of our children through quality education.” Joe Trimboli

      Joe,
      You did see where Lawton is 112 in rank and one of the more economically challenged regions right? Might be the intent but failing a bit at execution. Unless Detroit Public Schools is your benchmark.

  2. Robert Tulloch

    The PDF download for the district ranking is not formatted properly as a table, just a mass of test. Very poor.
    Searching is a pain.

    Please reformat.

  3. Tracy Wolford

    Can you break the classification down between for-profit and non-profit charter schools? I would be very interested to see that. I really appreciate my Bridge emails each week!
    Thanks,

      Very interesting question Tracy! Let me check to see if that is possible with the data we have and I’ll let you know.

    Sorry, rankings like this with convoluted formulas are a joke. Dearborn and Crestwood for example (and others, just using them as an example) ahead of Northville, Novi, South Lyon, East Grand Rapids, etc..?. district/cities that are places where people want to move to and where the schools are known to be better (just look at the average test scores.. ALL OF THEM, including ACT, MME, AP Exams, etc.) and have better student bodies (unless you are the International Academy where you recruit kids and the gap between the top and bottom kids is not that great) and are being punished for it. The International Academy as Number 1? Good luck selling that after the football incident against Westland Lutheran (I’m sure the charter push too has something to do with it as well). This smells of an agenda and I could sense it after attending one of these meetings. I’m sure they’ll be advocating for the EAA…

      @Tom

      Many of us know these rankings and formula for Value Added Scores are a joke, which is why it’s interesting that the outcome plays out like this. These rankings and value added scores have been pushed by the same education reformers that herald charters, right to work, and other measures that favor dismantling traditional public schools. That’s why it’s GREAT to see data like this where traditional public schools on the whole prove that they stack up against “new is obviously better” schools no matter how you rank them.

      Now, as far as the individual rankings of school district compared to each other, that’s always been a problem, no matter what formula you use to determine how they’re stacked against one another.

      1. Ann

        Maybe so Ben but did you notice that the majority of the top ranked schools WERE “TRADITIONAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS” not charter schools? Educator

        1. Tom

          Teachers know the charter push has been a joke. Most people know what’s going on but some of these politicians think they can pull a quick one on everyone. We know this formula- poverty=low achievement. Until that is fixed, the rankings will look similar no matter how you spin it… unless you punish districts for not getting the 5-10 minority/special education kids out of 1200+ students to get great test scores (the state grading system- another joke). That’s why parents in some of these areas have begun to just ignore these rankings.

    2. Tom

      I meant the Star Academy. The International Academy should be there near the top. Sorry…

    3. Diego

      A joke Tom? Did you read how it is determined. It combines ecomomics and achievement. While Northville is a quality rated school providing quality education, it is also in one of the more ecomomically viable areas. When people make more and the schools is better funded, then the education level should reflect that. This is showing for example, that Grand Rapids, although not pumping out as many college ready students, is producing when you consider they are one of the poorer schools.

      As with any report, you need to understand what it is they are showing.

      1. Tom

        Diego, I think you should learn the difference between Grand Rapids and East Grand Grand Rapids first before you try to validate this data. It’s still flawed. You’re going to tell me that Dearborn Schools are really outperforming Novi and the other schools I mentioned? I’ve seen all of these districts in action and if you feel better sending your kids to schools according to this list then you go right ahead. The Star Academy’s funding needs to be exposed too as they pulled many students out of the Dearborn and Crestwood Districts just because they offer an Arabic language class. That school lost so much credibility after the football match because of the behavior and then perception parents in the surrounding area have. I’m sure more people want to live in those districts that you are highlighting over the ones I’ve mentioned. I’m convinced that several districts are being punished because of a handful of students that are bringing down the vast majority of the district because of the “gap.”

    4. Joe Manzella

      It’s not a convoluted formula. VAM is a good tool to isolate the REAL variables: student outcomes. This data tells us that some underperforming schools or districts are actually doing a better job of affecting student achievement. It’s no statistical achievement to say that a school’s average test score is low. That’s a 2-second spreadsheet in excel, and it doesn’t tell you anything important. VAM tells us something important: Given that outside factors are a MAJOR (and some say THE MAJOR) factor in student success, which schools actually make a difference?

      The Coleman report of the 1960s (and it’s update about a decade ago) showed conclusively that “external” factors such as income and family life have far more impact than funding levels on student success.

      It’s a good measure, but it should certainly not be the ONLY measure to assess a school’s effectiveness. The broad strokes can show trends or ideas for high-performing schools at certain income levels. What are they doing? What works? What is replicable? But at the individual district level, we lose our ability to draw major conclusions other than a certain school is performing better or worse than economic-peer institutions. Is there variance within the district? Probably. Are there reasons for that variance? Probably. Would that be interesting to policymakers at the local level? Is there one policy that will fix it all? Absolutely not.

  5. Rich

    Without considering the per pupil funding for each district this analysis doesn’t really indicate if any “value” was added compared to the amount of money spent. Districts that receive the state minimum yet achieve better results receive no benefit in this analysis when compared to districts that receive more than the state minimum yet achieve the same results as a state minimum district.

  6. Michael W.

    What about return on investment too? What about the wealthier schools that have the hold-harmless money and get higher per pupil spending then the schools that don’t? Wouldn’t that have to be a factor? What about schools that spend less public money and get great return on investment (higher test scores) with less per-pupil spending?

  7. Bob Thompson

    I am struck by your honest attempt to use a ranking system on schools. Unfortunately, your attempts are as futile as those who have come before you. The problem with data like this is (and always will be) validity. What do these numbers mean? And you point out the size of this proverbial rabbit hole by your own presentation
    - allowing the user to pick and choose from the catagories at the column headers. It seems so tragic that schools are so inundated and distracted by such meaningless data… and consequently (and most importantly) denied access to data that is meaningful to school improvement! I gladly admit that some schools need to change. But I am also scientifically (and skeptically) grounded enough to understand that outcome driven data systems don’t add anything meaningful to the human story that unfolds in schools everyday.

  8. Jack

    There are serious problems with your rankings. Last year I think you said Atlanta schools were well above average and they were not. This year they are still ranked 231. They are a disaster – have lost about half their students, are broke, have been using non-certified teachers, picked a legal fight with the Intermediate School District – spent several hundred thousand dollars on legal fees and lost on all counts. During that fight for periods of time Atlanta schools failed to provide qualified services to special needs kids. They also spent funds inappropriately and will need to make restitution. They are being investigated for fraud – inflating the student counts on which state aid is based, probably doing the same with test scores. Previous Supt and Board president were forced out and a recall in progress for several other board members. Many Atlanta kids have transfered to neighboring districts and most are well behind their grade level when they transfer and need remedial work. State has to be giving serious consideration to stepping in and taking over – should probably have done that some time ago. District may well not survive. And you are still ranking them above average.

  9. Jack

    Please explain “You Comment Is Awaiting Moderation.” If you require documentation – these issues have been widely discussed over the last two years in both the Alpena News and The Montmorency County Tribune. The Alpena – Montmorency – Alcona Intermediate School District can also provide verification. If you can be so wrong about this district (and it may well be the worst example) – how can people have faith in the rest of the rankings. These rankings are important to people in these communities and they should be accurate.

  10. Kurt

    Where can I find the formula that was used? I’d like to see where my school ranks, but we must be too small. My school is Boyne Falls Public School.

  11. Jason Beatty

    How were the schools selected? University High School in Ferndale (Ferndale Public Schools – not charter) serves 99% African American students, of which more than 75% qualify for free / reduced lunch. Our ACT composite average is in the 17′s every year, we have 98% graduation rate, According to the most recent mischooldata.org data (2009-2010), 81% of our graduates attend college in the first 16 months following graduation and 58% of those earn 24 credits in their first year of college. Based on these numbers, we outperform Godwin Heights, but instead we weren’t even included in this analysis.

  12. Aarron Antcliff

    Hello Mr. French,

    Has this same test been done in prior years? I am interested in comparing our school to the past.

    I applaud your use of an index that adjusts for the relative poverty of students, a factor that is an enormous and often overlooked part of what goes into scores that students achieve in testing. However, you haven’t gone as far as you could with the data that are available:
    What’s missing from this analysis are at least these two things: First is an explanation of what represents a meaningful difference in scores. For that, you would need additional information, such as the confidence intervals for the scores, as scores will naturally fluctuate due to measurement error, they aren’t absolute indexes of students’ performance. The “top 10″ approach overplays tiny score differences as being much more important than they likely are.
    Second, even better would be for you to do this analysis across years, using scores from each of the past 3 or so years. The truly strong vs. weak performing schools are those that consistently score outside the range in which they are expected to perform.

  14. Roxanna Transit

    I’d love to see this ranking with a Sixth Column added – the per pupil allowance each of these schools receives.

    It seems to me that many of the schools listed have the highest per pupil allowances the state gives, while others such as Calumet receives funding at the lower tier – meaning they must be doing the most tremendous job with the low funding level the state gives them.

  15. Julie Durham

    I am interested in knowing the methodology used for doing this research? Was student level data used? Was longitudinal data used or just information from one year? A truly reliable Value Added Measure would include all of these things, in addition to a link between student and teacher to measure the value added of individual teachers. For more information on how to best use value added measures, I would suggest the website below:

      Ms. Durham, You can see an explanation of the methodology used in the rankings at http://cdn.bridgemi.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Value-Added-Matrix-Methodology_FINAL.pdf Thank you for your question.
