Automatic federal spending cuts will happen March 1 if Congress does not reach an agreement before that time.
Federal funding for Michigan’s public schools—including districts serving Clinton Township—could be cut even further should Congress fail to halt $85 billion in "sequestration" spending cuts scheduled to take hold March 1, according to a statement released this week by the White House. In Michigan, the cuts would result in a loss of $22 million in funding for schools this year, which the White House estimates would “put around 300 teacher and aid jobs at risk.” It would also cut $20.3 million in funding for special education programs. However, school officials for districts serving Clinton Township say they are unsure of exactly how the sequester will impact their budgeting and programs. "It is our understanding at this point in time that …

A new database compiled by the The Mackinac Center for Public Policy shows Chippewa Valley, Clintondale and L'Anse Creuse superintendents earning $224,926 or more in combined salary and benefits.
Editor's Note: The Mackinac Center for Public Policy acknowledged that some numbers in the superintendent database released last week may be incorrect. For instance, the center's figures show Utica Community Schools' superintendent as being the highest compensated in the state with a package of $300,789. But the Kalamazoo Gazette said that distinction might actually go to its superintendent, who has a total package worth $344,667 in 2012. MLive reported that the center's director said he’s received several phone calls from superintendents saying certain information is not correct. The superintendents of school districts serving Clinton Township may not have the top salaries in the state, but those six-figure numbers combined with contract …

President Barack Obama's proposal to redesign America's high schools to better train students for real-world jobs is a model already alive and well in Chippewa Valley Schools' career technical education program.
It was a Brooklyn high school that received recognition for its innovative technical education during the State of the Union Tuesday, but Clinton Township residents can find a model for the president’s proposed redesign of America’s high schools much closer to home. Chippewa Valley Schools is just one of several Macomb County districts that have, in recent years, moved to partner with institutions of higher education and integrate on-the-job training into their career technical education programs. “Right now, countries like Germany focus on graduating their high school students with the equivalent of a technical degree from one of our community colleges, so those German kids, they're ready for a job when they graduate high school,” said …

Chippewa Valley and L'Anse Creuse outpaced statewide MEAP averages in most subjects in 2012. However, Clintondale saw its proficiency remain below state average in all subjects.
For the most part, students in Chippewa Valley and L'Anse Creuse districts continued to perform on par or above their peers across the state in all subject areas, according to the recently-released results of the 2012 Michigan Educational Assessment Program, or MEAP test. Clintondale's results, on the other hand, were below state average in all subject areas and grade levels.
