"We are number one in the county," Robert Kerr Principal, Amy Holek, told Durand Now just minutes after sending out a text to the district's parents announcing the good news.  Before the end of the school day, the marquee in front of the building was celebrating as well.

The latest Mi School Data School Survey scores are out and they rank Durand's Robert Kerr Elementary at the top of all Shiawassee County's elementary schools.  The school's overall score of 94.35 is determined after scoring key performance indicators like Growth Index, where the school scored 98.92, and Proficiency Index, where the school scored 94.75.  The School Quality and Student Success component combines the results of up to five subcomponents: On-Track Attendance, Advanced Coursework, Postsecondary Enrollment, Access to Arts/Physical Education, Access to Librarian/Media Specialist.  In that area, the school scored 81.63; still, a higher score than most other elementary schools in the county received for their overall score.

Additionally, Bertha Neal Elementary, at 78.58 overall, ranks higher than five other Shiawassee County elementary schools, including Elsa Meyer in Corunna and all of Owosso's elementary schools, and also ranks higher than four of the five elementary schools in the Swartz Creek district.

The timing of the news is fortunate, as Durand will host Kindergarten and Preschool registration this evening, Thursday March 7th, from 5 to 7pm and Friday March 8th from 9am to 3pm at Bertha Neal.
