Conant Elementary students unveiled a new art piece on display at the Bloomfield Township Library. Fourth grade students created the colorful mosaic in art class and during recess. "We worked in groups to create the circular tiles," says Alena Khalid. "It was a long process. My favorite part was painting it because after it dried, it looked really cool."

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.
