The District Best Practices report provides at-a-glance access to a variety of different metrics that can be used to see how a district is performing, based upon the Michigan Department of Education MiDashboard.
District Best Practices criteria are determined on a yearly basis by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). Current dashboards reflect data collected in regards to grades 3-8 student MEAP math and reading proficiency, grade 11 MME proficiency (in all subjects), four year graduation rate, drop out rate, average class size grades K-3, district instructional days, general fund balance, and salary rates for superintendent, principals, and teachers.
Data is represented for current year, prior year, and two years prior. Note that the years referenced as “current”and “prior” are different for each metric, depending on the data availability and reporting schedule. You can place your cursor over the data element to see the year being referenced for each metric.
Class Size K-3:
Shows the average number of students per class.
Dropout Rate: Shows the percentage, calculated as Dropouts
divided by the Cohort, of the total number of students who left high school
permanently at any time during the 4, 5, or 6-year period (depending on which
rate is being reviewed), or whose whereabouts are unknown.
Balance: Shows the assets and
liabilities of a district. The difference between the assists and liabilities
is either the fund balance (when assets are greater) or the fund deficit (when
liabilities are greater).
The Center for Educational Performance and
Information (CEPI) and the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) collected the
data used to compile this report. The databases used include:
CEPI collected pupil
enrollment and attendance data through the Michigan Student Data System (MSDS).
Additional information is available on CEPI's website.
MDE reported data on
student proficiency on state assessments. Additional information is available
at MDE's website.
% Proficient = Full
Academic Year Students Proficient / Full Academic Year Students Assessed
