The Michigan School Accountability Scorecards include a scale for how well a school meets proficiency goals that are tailored to each individual building. Colors are assigned accordingly, from red for fewer than 50 percent of goals met, to orange, yellow, lime green and green, which means more than 85 percent of goals are met.
Ten years from now, each school district is expected to reach the 85 percent proficiency goal and obtain the green label.
The scorecard is a result of Michigan's waiver from some federal requirements under the No Child Left Behind rules — one of is a 100 percent proficiency goal. The waiving of requirements means that Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) data will no longer will be reported.
