From the Director of Information Technology, Larry Hanks:
Dear Edwardsburg School Family and Community Members,
I wanted to take a quick moment and reach out to inform everyone that we are currently taking the necessary steps to update our website as a way to increase our compliance with OCR (Office for Civil Rights) website standards. During this time, we have audited our current website and we have begun adjusting our images, pages, and documents to ensure that we are in full compliance of OCR's requirements. Thank you for your patience during this website transition and please check back regularly for updates on our progress.
In 1991, the Michigan State Board of Education developed the Michigan Model Core Curriculum, as well as Essential Goals and Assessment Frameworks in each subject area. Since that time, Edwardsburg High School developed outcomes, activities, goals and objectives that follow State guidelines. Beginning in the 1995-96 academic year, the State Department of Education measured success of the Core Curriculum by administering proficiency tests. This determines whether or not these outcomes and objectives have been a part of a student's school experience.
In addition to the courses taught at Edwardsburg High School, students have an opportunity to attend courses in pharmacy tech, health careers academy, building trades, or courses offered at the Elkhart Area Career Center. Students also have the opportunity to take college-level and college credit courses in English, Math, Psychology/Sociology and the Trades. An extended education program is also offered to juniors and seniors who will not have enough credits to graduate. This program offers courses taught after the regular school day for students who are in jeopardy of not graduating with their class. New in 1992-93 was the Math-Science Accelerated Program through the Berrien County Intermediate School District and taught at Andrews University. Alternative education is offered as a dropout prevention program.
