Welcome to the School and District Accountability Reporting Page.

The Michigan Department of Education and the Center for Educational Performance and Information have developed a series of dashboards and reports showing performance and effectiveness for Michigan schools and districts. Each of these tools assesses entities for different perspectives and purposes. Together, the suite of tools creates a larger overall picture of an entity’s performance and effectiveness.
