Accountability report finds 54 school districts with at least one low-achieving school
Over 50 school districts in Michigan have at least one under-achieving school.
That’s part of the latest update from the state detailing which schools have been designated for additional support through partnership agreements.
State superintendent Michael Rice says he sees the numbers as a chance for improvement rather than cause for concern.
It really does provide an opportunity to think very, very deeply, with the state, with the intermediate school district, with your regional education service agency, your RESA, an opportunity to think deeply about how you are going to do better coming out of the pandemic.
Rice says partnerships can include goal setting, training, and collaboration with community stakeholders to make sure students are getting the help they need.
