Watch the video to see how the EAA is making a difference.
Why choose a traditional school when an EAA option is available?
Education Achievement Authority (EAA) of Michigan schools implement a student-centered model of teaching and learning that allows teachers to personalize instruction to meet the needs of each child. Its teachers are focused on individual student progress rather than a “one size fits all” approach. Teachers assess each student to identify their specific learning needs.
- Each student:
- Works at their own pace — they get extra seat time when they need it and they have an opportunity to accelerate ahead when they are ready:
- For example, if a student can complete course work in six months, rather than nine, they will be advanced to the next level of instruction.
- If a student needs 10 months to complete course work, they will not be penalized because it takes them longer.
- Achieves credit based on when they master their skills and complete individual goals, not when the calendar says it’s time.
- Succeeds through the blended teaching and learning approach of dedicated teachers and support staff, state-of-the-art technology, and their fellow students.
- Parents, students and teachers have real-time access to data on student progress.
- Each student has access to a personal computer.
- 210 days of instruction verses the traditional 175 days (with a trimester option for high school students who need flexibility during the summer months — see details below).
- 95 percent of the resources are directed to the operations of individual EAA member schools.
“[The students] feel safer; they’re learning more. They feel they’re in an environment where they have a chance to be successful.”
