Thursday, January 11, 2018
As a parent, do you ever wonder:
Parents and other caregivers of a school-aged child now can easily find answers to these questions and many more through one user-friendly online tool. Michigan’s new Parent Dashboard for School Transparency (or “Parent Dashboard”) makes it easier for parents to see many types of information about any public school in Michigan, including public school academies (charter schools).
The new dashboard is designed especially for parents and other caregivers. It will report on more than 20 different factors—or measures—that parents and other stakeholders have said are important to them when evaluating the quality of a school. Families and others can use the dashboard to get a more complete picture of how their child’s school is serving students. You also can use the dashboard to compare a school’s performance with the average performance of other similar Michigan schools.

Information in the Parent Dashboard:
We encourage parents to check out the Oakridge Public School’s Parent Dashboard, and tell us which measures excite you most. We also want to know where you think we need to improve. Equipped with this information, we hope to have richer conversations about our school and its students.
The new Parent Dashboard is a “living tool” that will continue to add information and adapt to meet parents’ needs. Parents and others are invited to send feedback to MDE-ParentDashboard@michigan.gov.
