Parent Dashboard for School Transparency from the Michigan Department of Education

Parent Dashboard for Transparency


  • How well is Homer Community Schools helping students achieve state standards?
  • How many instructional staff per student does Homer Community Schools employ? 
  • How many Homer Community Schools students graduate within 4, 5, and 6 years?
  • What is the attendance rate for students at Homer Community Schools?

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. They also can use the dashboard to compare a school’s performance with the average performance of other similar Michigan schools.
