Roosevelt Annual Report
January 25, 2021
Dear Parents and Community Members:
We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2019-2020 educational progress for Roosevelt Elementary School. Please note that the assessment data provided reflects winter benchmark data due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by federal and state laws. The school’s report contains information about student assessment, accountability, and teacher quality. If you have any questions about the AER, please contact Peter Rogovich, Roosevelt principal, for assistance.
The AER is available for you to review electronically or you may review a copy in the main office at your child’s school.
For the 2019-20 school year, schools were identified using definitions and labels as required in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). A Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) school is one that has at least one underperforming student subgroup. An Additional Targeted Support (ATS) school is one that has three or more underperforming student subgroups. A Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) school is one whose performance is in the lowest 5% of all schools in the state. School schools are not identified with any of these labels. In these cases, no label is given.
Our school has not been given one of these labels.
Increasing academic achievement for all students is always our goal. This past year all classrooms were required to have a 90 minute 5 day-a-week reading block along with a Tier II (WIN – What I Need) 30 minute intervention for all students. Students needing more support received Tier III (WIN+) for an additional 30 minutes. The WIN and WIN+ interventions occurred 4-5 days per week. Throughout the year we worked together to collect data and refine our instruction during the block. We provided more interventions in reading and math for students by increasing our Title I support. Our Title I staff (teacher and interventionists) and resource room teachers pushed into classrooms to support students when appropriate. Teachers and interventionists received sustained training throughout the year to improve instruction and intervention.
PROCESS FOR ASSIGNING PUPILS TO THE SCHOOL – Students in Zeeland are assigned to schools based upon their geographical home locations. After all students are placed based upon this “neighborhood school” concept, school of choice students are placed based upon available spots.
THE STATUS OF THE 3-5 YEAR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN – Roosevelt Elementary continues to work on our school improvement plan to help our students achieve the necessary skills for success in reading, writing, math, science, social studies and exhibiting positive behaviors. The plan is available for review on our building web site.
THE CORE CURRICULUM for our school is based upon the State of Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations and National Common Core Standards. This information is available at our school office or on our building website. Zeeland Public Schools makes sure our students are provided challenging lessons that are consistent across grade levels. A team of Zeeland educators regularly evaluates and revises our curriculum to ensure that classroom lessons meet state requirements for kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Ninety-seven percent (97%) of Roosevelt students were represented by parents at our parent teacher conferences.
We are very thankful for our strong community partnerships. Our PTO provides us with a variety of special events, funds field trips and supplies extra classroom materials. Ottawa Reformed Church is our Kids Hope USA partner. Church members mentored approximately 33 students. We also appreciate the support of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department, Hand2Hand, the Zee Bus, Zero Gravity and the Ottawa County Health Department. This school year was the third with the Ottawa Community Schools Network. This has allowed us to have a School Community Liaison working in our school. Our liaison helps increase community support for our students and their families. These include assisting with housing, food, counseling and educational support.
Students gave back to the community last year by collecting non-perishables and pop can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House.
Every day we model our mission statement: “The Roosevelt Elementary Staff in partnership with parents and community strives to prepare students for a lifetime of learning by providing a safe and success-oriented learning experience”. Roosevelt is successful because we have a staff dedicated to student success, great community support and most importantly, parents who work with us every day to make sure students value education. Thank you for all you do!
Principal, Roosevelt Elementary School
