The Accountability Scorecard report shows federally required school and district accountability ratings under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).
Michigan received a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education in 2012 that allowed for the development of a new reporting system for school performance. You can find more information about accountability scorecards on the MDE website.
The data are important because they represent the official determination of school status.Up to five components make up a School or District Accountability Scorecard:
Scorecards use a color coding system. In order of highest color to lowest, they are: Green, Lime, Yellow, Orange, and Red. Colors are based on meeting targets in the different Scorecard components. Missing targets in some components will automatically lower the overall Scorecard color even if the school or district is meeting all other targets.
Scorecards for schools and districts that are new or don't have Full Academic Year (FAY) students receive a scorecard with a separate color scale, because they don't have available indicators of academic performance. In order of highest color to lowest, they are: Purple, Yellow, Orange, and Red.
A three-color coding scheme is used for proficiency, attendance, and graduation. Green represents meeting a specific target, yellow represents meeting an improvement target, and red represents not meeting the target nor improvement target.
A two-color coding scheme is used for educator evaluations, compliance factors, and participation. Green represents meeting the component requirements, and red represents not meeting the component requirements.
