InspirED Michigan is now in its third month of telling the story of public schools that is so often overlooked: that good things are happening every day in buildings and classrooms around the state. A project of the Michigan Public School Partnership, the digital monthly magazine puts the spotlight on the innovative, inspirational, and life changing work of Michigan's public school community.

Every year ACT presents grad class data to the State Board of Education. The information provided is perfect for building your own school's data wall and for providing a clear picture for your staff and stakeholders about your school/districts current state of college readiness. The ACT scores reflected in this report include retakes that MI students may take between the Junior year MME/ACT and graduation—so these scores tend to be a bit higher than those taken by our Juniors during MME testing.
At their Tuesday meeting the State Board of Education (SBE) heard a presentation on proposed new Michigan state science standards that MDE has been working to develop over the past several months.
