This data set shows the number of students who reside within a district's boundaries, but attend school in another local education agency (LEA) district or public school academy (PSA), either through Schools of Choice programs or other cooperative agreements. The Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) created this data set by examining the statewide individual student data it maintains via the Michigan Student Data System (MSDS).
After the user selects a school district to view, the "snapshot" view will display a report that includes students entering the district from other districts and students leaving the district for other districts. The data display in a bar chart and in a data table.
The default display is based on "full-time equivalency (FTE)," in which school districts report students based on the proportion of the students' instruction supported by the district. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) uses FTE to allocate funds under the State School Aid Act. District authorized users may report some students with less than 1.00 FTE, depending on the courses and subjects that they enroll in. The button "Student Count" will change the display from FTE to a student headcount where each student is counted as one, regardless of FTE. When the "Student Count" view displays, the button will be enabled to switch the display to "Show Full Time Equivalency."
The Trend button will change the display from Snapshot to Trend. The trend view will display line graphs showing the students entering the district from other districts and students leaving the district for other districts over the most recent five years.
The display distinguishes between the "Number of Students Entering district" and the "Number of Students Leaving district." The "Number of Students Entering district" refers to students that attend the selected district and where the student is not a resident of the district. The "Number of Students Leaving district" displays the number of students that are residents of the selected district and that attend other districts, including Public School Academies. When a Public School Academy is selected, all students will be shown as "Students Entering district" and no students will be displayed as "Students Leaving district."
A nonpublic pupil who attends a private, denominational or a parochial school or a pupil who is home schooled may be enrolled on a part-time basis in grades 1-12 in nonessential elective courses provided by a public school. Nonpublic students have been excluded from this display of nonresident students.
School districts report Residency Codes to the State as a part of each student's record. Some residency codes that will be shown as nonresident status include:
