Parents - You may have read in the paper or heard on the news today that Henry Ford Academy: Elementary School is entering into a Partnership Agreement with the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and were wondering what this means.  This means that we are submitting a plan that describes our goals for strengthening student performance on the MSTEP, Michigan’s standardized testing system and the strategies we are implementing to reach those goals.  While the announcement from MDE is occurring now, our plan was developed last year and is already being implemented.  If you have any questions about this, please reach out to Ms. Brimage.
