Michigan School Report Card
EducationYes! is Michigan’s system of school accreditation. The system includes components for student achievement, measuring both status and change, and a measurement of Indicators of School Performance. Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is a cornerstone of the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. In Michigan, it measures year-to-year student achievement on the Michigan Education Assessment Program (MEAP) for elementary and middle schools, or the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) for high schools. Other indicators, such as the number of students who participate in the assessments and graduation rate for high schools, are also considered in the calculation.
