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.
Wing Lake Developmental Center
Wing Lake staff is extremely proud of their reputation for providing quality educational programming for students with special needs. Wing Lake services Oakland County students with severe cognitive impairments (SCI) and severe multiple impairments (SXI) from three through twenty-six years of age. The school is open for instruction year round. Operating costs are covered through a combination of a countywide special education levy and state funding provided to resident school districts. The program is operated by the Bloomfield Hills School District. Eligible students reside within the 28 resident public school districts in Oakland County.
Wing Lake provides a comprehensive educational program in a caring and supportive environment where each student's fullest potential is the staff's greatest concern. An educational team evaluates the student's abilities in the developmental areas of gross motor, fine motor, self-care, language and pre-academic skills: math, reading, science and social studies. An Individual Educational Plan is written to meet the needs of each student. Long-range goals and short-term objectives are developed and progress is continually monitored. Along with therapies our program also provides activities including adaptive physical education, music, swimming, community-based instruction, student council, and prevocational activities. Nursing staff is also available to monitor student health concerns. At Wing Lake we strive to teach as many skills of daily living and self-care as possible to increase independence. Staff also assists our students with transition planning in anticipation of program completion.
