Parent Dashboard  The online Parent Dashboard was developed by the MDE in collaboration with the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) to advance the State Board of Education’s vision of an easy-to-use dashboard filled with meaningful school-level data that offers a more balanced picture of school quality.

The Parent Dashboard launched January 9, 2018 after months of extensive input by parents and educators. It can be accessed on any computer or mobile device - MI School Data Parent Dashboard.
