State Superintendent Mike Flanagan has notified the district that Lee High School has been released from its 2010 priority status due to the hard work of our professional staff and students these past five years.
I’m pleased to send the attached letter notifying you of the release of one of your schools form Priority School Status. Congratulations to you and to your school leaders, staff, and students for their diligence in school improvement!
As you may recall, Lee High School was identified for a significant federal school improvement grant that ran from 2010-11 through the start of the 2013-14 school year. That funding coupled with Rebel spirit and dedication led to the high school’s substantial climb in the top-to-bottom rankings of Michigan schools, particularly during the first two years.
I echo Superintendent Flanagan’s praise and include a copy of his letter, below.
