Hello Milan Area Schools Community,
As the district finalized plans for the 2022-2023 school year, it became evident that more scheduled professional
development time would be needed to complete the work necessary to support school improvement and the district’s Strategic Plan. Therefore, the calendar for the 2022-2023 school year is being adjusted on four days.
Specifically, the four half days of professional development throughout the year will be converted to four full
days of professional development. In other words, October 31st, December 9th, February 3rd, and May 5th will become no-school days for students.
Milan Area Schools staff will be participating in professional development on those dates.
While we will be removing four half days with students from the calendar, we strongly believe that the benefits of the added professional development will well outweigh any concerns.
An updated 2022-2023 calendar is available HERE.
To submit a question for the candidates, please use this Google Form: https://forms.gle/1J1x8XqV2xgTcGyT6
(Questions due by 4:00 PM on 9-26-22)

The Milan Area Schools School Quality Survey asked parents, staff, and students in grades 3-12 for feedback on various aspects of the school environment.
K12 Insight partnered with the district leadership team to develop the survey, which addressed the following topics:
• Academic Support
• Student Support
• School Leadership
• Family Involvement
• Safety and Behavior
The survey was open from June 7 – June 21. Reminders were sent to non-participants on June 13, 17, and 21. Email invitations were delivered to parents and campus-based staff. Parents were able to take the survey for each child enrolled in a district school. Students could access the survey via a landing page.
This report summarizes district-level results and compares them by stakeholder group. Elementary students took a simplified version of the survey; therefore, they are not included in comparisons.
This report includes the thematic analysis of the open-ended survey question: Please share any other thoughts you have about your experiences this school year. Responses from the open-ended question were closely analyzed and coded to identify similarities and dissimilarities within the data. Pattern coding was then utilized to identify and categorize similarly coded data to develop the major themes.

In an effort to keep the Milan Community up to speed on important educational topics, Bryan Girbach, the Superintendent of Milan Area Schools, will be sharing updates following each School Board Meeting. These updates will provide information about educational topics at the district, county, state, and national levels.
These updates are available HERE.
The city of Milan, which encompasses a total of 3.4 square miles, was founded in 1831 and is located in the Southeastern Counties of Washtenaw and Monroe in the State of Michigan. Located between the cultural and commercial hubs of Ann Arbor, MI and Toledo, OH, Milan has both rural and suburban areas.
The Milan School District embraces nearly 90 square miles and serves households in both Washtenaw and Monroe Counties. The district is proud to note that its staff is made up of both veteran teachers and those new to the profession, all of whom are highly qualified. The four school buildings that comprise the Milan Area School District operate as schools-of-choice facilities and consistently enroll students from four surrounding counties. The district offers exceptional educational programs to approximately 2,000 students ranging from preschool age to grade twelve.
The community is proud of the scholastic and extracurricular accomplishments of its students. School activities serve as an important part of the overall student experience and provide social activities for the entire community.
