Last spring, students experienced an unprecedented and widespread series of technical issues when taking the state-mandated, fully computerized M-STEP test in Bloomfield Hills. These documented issues were pervasive across our district, resulting in hundreds of students being repeatedly 'kicked out of' the test-- in some cases dozens of times each-- and sometimes losing paragraphs of written work entered into the computer. These difficulties occurred despite Bloomfield Hills Schools having earned a perfect score of 9 on the state's 9 point technical readiness scale.

High School Families: Starting this school year, high school bus stops will be located at subdivision entrances and/or no further than ½ mile from a student's home. This is a change to our previous practices and was made to reduce the number of stops our buses make per day by 343 stops. By reducing the number of stops per day, we will reduce our annual operating expenses, preserving more programs and services offered during the school day.
