The Washtenaw Intermediate School District is contracted to provide services for students at the Washtenaw County Youth Center. Students have six hours of class time per day. There are a maximum of ten students per class. We use Edgenuity, an online education tool, and direct instruction to assess and advance students' learning.
Aligned to the state of Michigan's policies and philosophy, we focus on mastery of content, rather than the time spent on tasks. This means, at times, we will test students out of material they know, and look for every opportunity to help their transition in and out of the facility and work to keep them or get them on track with school. We focus on what each student needs to learn and grow. For some, that might be work in a specific subject, for others it might be the school behaviors and habits to return to their school. If you have any questions about your student's plan, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For more on the state's definition of mastery of content, see the Michigan Department of Education guidelines (PDF). This resource also contains information about graduate requirements for the state of Michigan.
The MMC requires that credit be awarded based on a student’s demonstration that he or she has successfully met the content expectations for the credit area, not by the commonly used Carnegie unit, which is based on seat time. View the curriculum (PDF) for more information.
When your student exits our program, progress reports and credit recommendations, if credit was earned will be sent to you, the parent, and the home school district. If you have questions about credit or work while your student was with us, please do not hesitate to contact us at 734-973-4343.
