 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.

Paper Retriever
Recycling Bin

We now have a Paper Retriever recycling bin located near the bus loop by our garbage bin.
Not only is this a wonderful environmental stewardship program, we also earn money for the paper that is collected, and the more recyclable paper donated by the community, the more funds we can raise.
When dropping off your paper, please do your best to avoid bus loop pick-up and drop-off time.
