The work of improving our schools never ends - there is always room for improvement! Alpena Public Schools follows a process of continuous review of our practices and our data to make decisions and implement programs to help all our students be successful and ready for whatever challenges they may encounter.

District Improvement Plan Summary
We have prepared a summary document which gives a brief overview of our District's priorities and the key activities we have planned for the current school year. View or download it HERE. Feel free to contact us for more specific information. Building-level school improvement plans can be viewed on each school's page.
Beginning with the 2009-10 academic year, the State of Michigan has provided families, communities and schools with a comprehensive report of school progress. This Annual Education Report (AER) takes data collected from schools on student achievement and teacher qualifications and presents this along with information on school and district Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) status. Combined with the appropriate building or district Cover Letter, these two documents give a complete report that meets the requirements of the Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) and Michigan's PA 25 of 1990.
These documents may be viewed online or downloaded and printed (warning: some documents are lengthy). Buildings are listed below alphabetically with the full district report at the end.
