The At Risk Student report shows the performance of Section 31a At Risk identified students on state assessments. Student performance is presented as a snapshot view of Accountability Measures (3rd grade English Language Arts proficiency, 8th grade mathematics and 11th grade college and career readiness).
The report includes all students who have been identified to meet any of the 31a at risk factors and have been coded “3060” in MSDS in the same district for two out of three collections in a given school year. A student is considered “at-risk” if the student meets any of the following risk factors:
- did not achieve proficiency on the English Language Arts, math, science, or social studies content areas of the state summative assessment
- is at risk of not meeting the district’s core academic curricular objectives in ELA or math, as demonstrated on local assessments
- is a victim of child abuse or neglect
- is a pregnant teenager or teenage parent
- has a family history of school failure, incarceration, or substance abuse
- is enrolled in a priority or priority successor school. [Sec.31A (14) (a-f)] Priority schools are those schools identified in the bottom five percent of the statewide Top-to-Bottom school rankings. Priority successor schools are those where fifty percent or more of enrolled students at existing priority schools transfer to a new school, and where fifty percent or more of enrolled students at this new school come from the sending school.
This report is provided in order to meet the legislative mandates contained within the School State Act in regards to At-Risk students. For more information about Section 31a At Risk refer to the Section 31a FAQ document.
The report is updated annually in early spring. See the Recently Posted Reports page for when the report was last updated.
Due to the suspension of state assessments, assessment data for the 2019-20 school year is not available for M-STEP, MI-Access, SAT, PSAT, or ACT WorkKeys. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Education Department (USED) issued a waiver of the federal requirement that Michigan students take statewide summative assessments during the 2019-20 school year, as well as for waivers of related accountability and report card requirements. Executive Order 2020-65 waived state requirements for these assessments.
- An 8th grade PSAT mathematics tile was added in school year 2018-19 as an accountability measure.

CEPI collected the data used to compile this report. The databases used include:
- CEPI’s Michigan Student Data System, to collect student demographics. For more information on the MSDS application and reporting rules, please see the MSDS Collection Details Manual on the CEPI website.
- The Michigan Department of Education Office of Assessment and Accountability, which sets policies for M-STEP, SAT and PSAT administration, provided the test data.
If you have questions not addressed here or in the linked resources, please contact CEPI customer support at email@example.com.
To protect the privacy of individual students, CEPI applies data suppression rules to sensitive data when report settings would yield fewer than 10 students in a given group. Complementary groups may also be suppressed. In some cases, values less than 10 may be shown when there is no risk of identifying individual students. Secure users can log in to view unsuppressed data for their authorized location. Please see How CEPI Protects Education Data for more information.
