School-Wide Goal

Merit Learning Center will maintain a graduation rate of 90% for the eligible seniors who complete our program with a high school diploma.


By May 27th, 2016, all students will earn 10 credits per year or a monthly equivalent of 1.1 credits per month as measured by the official transcript.


Graduation Rate - 90%

Attained ISP Goals (2) - 20% or above

Little Progress toward ISP Goals (4) - less than 10%


How will your students' performance contribute to the school-wide goal?

Progress Monitoring

Over the next few weeks, please meet with each of your students to review their second semester goals. It is very important that you stress that "little things make a big difference". In other words, students need to focus on our keys to success.


  • Attendance - Attend school every day
  • Productivity - Pass at least two assessment/scored activities every day


If students come to school every day and take care of the little stuff, they will meet their semester goal!
