Information About 2020-21 Annual Education Report
The AER is designed to meet annual report requirements of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act for an annual report. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-21 AER (based on 2019-20 school year data) includes only a small subset of the information typically included in an AER. Data available have been limited by Michigan's approved federal waiver of spring 2020 statewide assessments.
