State releases scorecards for area schools

State releases scorecards for area schools story image

LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Michigan Department of Education has released the scorecards for area schools.

The state says about 30 percent of all Michigan public schools met targets in all areas, except having a wide achievement gap between their highest- and lowest-performing students.

One-third of public schools at risk of being placed in Michigan's turnaround district improved enough last year to fall outside the bottom 5 percent.     

But 60 new "priority" schools are now in the bottom 5 percent.

The schools will be placed under the supervision of Michigan's School Reform Officer, who can impose an intervention model.

We have a crew working on this breakdown. Look for a full report, coming up at 5:30pm Wednesday.
