Annual Education Report for the 2017-18 School Year

The federal components of the Annual Education Report (AER) provide detailed information about the status of education in Michigan’s public schools, public school academies, districts and Michigan’s statewide performance. This report provides all of the information on Teacher Quality, Student Assessment and Accountability for schools, districts and the state in one convenient place:

  • Teacher Qualifications: Identifies teacher qualifications in relation to requirements. Here you can find how many teachers in a school, district or across the state possess specific qualifications.
  • Student Assessment: Presents assessment information for English language arts and mathematics for grades 3 to 8 and 11, and science for grades 4, 7 and 11, compared to targets for all students as well as subgroups of students. The report helps users understand achievement progress within grades and schools, and to make comparisons to district, state and national achievement benchmarks.
  • Accountability: Uses information from assessments, graduation and attendance rates, and school quality measures, to determine if the school is meeting accountability targets. Here you can identify how well your school is serving the overall academic needs of students. More information about school accountability is available on the MDE Accountability page.

The ease of navigating through this report allows users to access this information quickly. Once the combined report inquiry is selected, choose your location and information on your selection will be displayed in tabular form.

The reports can be easily linked to a local school or district web page, can be printed and distributed with a cover letter to fulfill all annual education report requirements of ESSA.

In order to fulfill the state’s requirements for an annual education report, the district and schools will need to add the following components: process for assigning pupils to the school, status of the 3-5 year school improvement plan, brief description of each specialized school, identify how to access copy of core curriculum implementation and variances from state’s model, aggregate student achievement results, parent-teacher conference data, and (for high schools only) number and percent of postsecondary enrollments (dual enrollment), number of college equivalent courses offered, number and percentage of students enrolled in college equivalent courses (AP/IB), and the number and percent of students receiving a score leading to college credit.
