Under the Every Student Succeeds Act, Michigan is developing a new multiple measures accountability framework. The Michigan Department of Education will publish web-based data dashboards that will show Local Education Agency (LEA), school, and subgroup performance across a range of performance indicators. The data in the dashboards will be used to identify Partnership Districts, as laid out in Michigan’s Top 10 in 10 Plan, and schools that need support and improvement, as required by the Every Student Succeeds Act.
The state dashboards will publish lagging data, from the previous academic year or even earlier. This presents a challenge for districts wanting to get ahead of this. What tools will your district use to monitor progress against state indicators in real time, so you know you’re on track to meet state benchmarks?
If your district is interested in monitoring your key performance indicators in real time, but is hoping for additional financial support to make it happen, this resource will give you some ideas for where to look.
