The Quick Facts report provides an overview of the different types and counts of education buildings by state, intermediate school district, and district.
The data are important because it provides a quick overview of the number of educational facilities and buildings in the state of Michigan.
Three types of entities are displayed when viewing a report: schools, Unique Education Providers (UEPs), and non-instructional ancillary facilities.
You can search building and facility information by ISD, district and statewide. After choosing your location, select the desired school year. You can explore the report by the following three categories: number of schools broken down by grade, number of unique education providers broken down by grade, and number of non-instructional ancillary facilities broken down by ancillary function. When you view the first two sections of the report, you’ll see building count information broken down by grade level, intermediate school district (ISD), local education agency (LEA), Public School Academy (also known as charters, or PSAs), state facility, and school year. When you view the third report, you’ll see ancillary facilities broken down by ISD, LEA, PSA, state facility, and school year.

The Quick Facts report uses the following examples of grade level groupings. Elementary, junior/middle, and high school grades were identified by using the grades and settings reported by the district as being offered at the school. Typically, elementary grades range from kindergarten to six, junior/middle school grades range up to grades seven and eight, and high school grades range from nine to twelve.
Elementary, middle and high school labels are not universally agreed upon; these are provided as an analytical tool:
This report is updated annually in the fall.
Location Name/Type/Entity - You can select and compare data at different entity levels: statewide, by intermediate school district (ISD), by school district, and by individual schools that include all local education agency (LEA) and public school academy (PSA) schools. It is important to note public school academies are also referred to as charter schools and considered their own district.
Intermediate School Districts (ISDs) - Provide various administrative services and cooperative, coordinated educational services among many school districts in the name of economy and efficiency. This includes multiple constituent LEAs and PSAs.
Local Education Agency (LEA) - These are public school districts operating in accordance with the statutes, regulations, and policies of the Michigan Department of Education. An LEA district has a set geographical boundary and may include any grade configuration along with educational settings (e.g., alternative education, special education, career and technical education).
Public School Academy (PSA) - Also referred to as charter schools, a public school academy is a state-supported public school without geographical boundaries. A public school academy may include grades or educational settings in accordance with its charter contract. It is important to note public school academies are also referred to as charter schools and considered their own district.
