We understand that as parents and guardians, every day you entrust us with your most valuable assets – your children. Keeping them sae is a responsibility that we take very seriously. Here is what we’re doing to make sure your children have a sae place to learn. H EAA School Security Every EAA school is protected by both unarmed security guards and armed police o cers both inside the school and outside on the school grounds. The security personnel sta the en- trance to every school, keeping track Importance of Safety o all who enter the school. They also walk the hallways during class and when students are changing classes to make sure students are where they’re supposed to be and not in danger o any kind. H Command Center The Center monitors each EAA school 24 hours a day. Every school has cameras that are monitored by security personnel located in the Command Center. The Command Center is located at I-75 and Clay Avenue; it is a $5.6 million state o the art acility built in 2011. Top security personnel meet daily to review the day’s events and Hello amilies, Two months ago, on Sept. 4, we opened the door on a new era in public education in America– the Education Achievement Authority o Michigan (EAA). The goal we outlined at the time was to radically transorm public education by putting an end to “one size f ts all” education. To achieve this, we develop a unique education plan or each individual student, assure that students progress only as they master a subject and provide a longer school year to give children more time to learn. No longer will students be moved on just because they have spent nine months sitting in a chair. They will move on when they master a particular subject. strategize on ways to prevent incidents. EAA students who are detained by EAA security personnel will be held in the Center’s juvenile holding rooms until picked up by their parents. H Crime Stoppers of Michigan EAA has partnered with Crime Stoppers o Michigan to launch Project Sae Campus as part o our e ort to assure a sae campus or all our schools. Working with each school’s student council, Project Sae Campus encourages students to anonymously report incidents o crime, bullying or any other potentially unsae situation. Each student will be awarded up to $100 or every anonymous tip that leads to action. While the school year is still young, I am pleased to report that the response on the part o students, parents and caregivers, aculty and administrators has been overwhelmingly positive. One grandmother wrote us that she has “learned to love her (granddaughter’s) school as much as she does.” She continued, “It is imperative that we create a sae and stimulating environment or our children to learn while listening to parents in orming a more cohesive educational experience or our children.” This was just one o the testimonies we’ve received rom students and parents who are noticing a di erence in our new system that will deliver a di erent outcome. But her comments sum up the enthusiasm and excitement so many students, parents and other caregivers have been voicing to us. This newsletter is part o our continuing e ort to reach out to our EAA amily to keep you up to date on what is happening in our schools. I hope you will take a ew minutes to read it. I you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your school or our EAA o ce. We’re glad you’re part o the EAA amily. Sincerely, J. Wm.

Association at the recent First Annual Prosperity Awards. Detroit Manuacturing Systems was recognized or its work hiring over 800 new employees since 2012. Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation partnered with Detroit Manuacturing Systems to identiy and screen job candidates or the hundreds o positions the company was oering. To date, more than 2,500 candidates have been screened, 1,400 interviews conducted, and the company has a retention rate o over 85% or new employees. Andra Rush, President and CEO o Detroit Manuacturing Systems was highlighted by President Obama during his State o the Union speech as a Michigan success story. “Without DESC, I don’t know that I would have made my employment requirements, said Rosemary Brewer, an employee at Detroit Manuacturing Systems. “They’ve been very responsive to whatever our needs have been.” “Job makers like Detroit Manuacturing System are oering Detroiters a brighter uture one job at a time,” said state Sen. Tupac Hunter (D-Detroit). “Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation is a remarkable resource or residents across the City, as they work to meet the demands o employers and put Detroit back to work.” O Detroit’s more than 300 parks, only about 25 across the city were regularly maintained last season. This year, Mayor Mike Duggan’s adopt- a-park scheme has seen over 70 parks maintained by churches, organizations and neighborhood groups, but that still let 230. So when the City o Detroit’s General Ser- vices Division (GSD) needed to increase its number o seasonal workers, who did they turn to? They turned to DESC’s Summer Youth Employment Program. DESC’s partnership with Reliance One has so ar resulted in well over 100 positions flled or the Auburn Hills- based stafng agency, recently voted one o Michigan’s top 100 employers. Finding employees able to travel to Au- burn Hills was proving a challenge until DESC was able to provide recruitment services and run screening days ; Service Center – Northwest 18100 Meyers (Lodge Fwy / W Grand Blvd) Service Center – Southwest 9301 Michigan Ave (Michigan Ave / I-94) Service Center – East 5555 Conner (Conner / I-94) SERVICE CENTER HOURS Monday–Friday 8.30am–5.00pm Open late (7.00pm) Thursday Check in 8.30am or 1.30pm Satellite Service Center – East 13840 Lappin Street (Lappin Street / Verona Street) Satellite Service Center – West 16164 Asbury Park (Asbury Park / Florence Street) SATELLITE SERVICE CENTER HOURS Monday–Friday 10:00am–3:00pm One-Stop Service Centers Jobs Filled since July 2013 (WIA, PATH, and TANF) 8,033 Accepting the Prosperity Award (left to right) are Jose Reyes (DESC Chief Operating Officer), Monica Brand (DMS Plant HR Manager), Christine Quinn (Director of Michigan’s Workforce Development Agency) and Richard Acosta (DESC One-Stop Operations Director) “We were extremely impressed with the frst group o youth that came to us through DESC” said Brad Dick, Director o Detroit’s General Services Division. “In act, it was such a positive experience that in May we decided to expand the activity to include park maintenance right throughout the summer months.” DESC has so ar recruited over 50 youth or the cleanup and maintenance operation, with 20 more to be added.
