Michigan Department of Education needs your feedback

We have always known parent voice is an important contribution to programs and policy created for children and families.  The Michigan Department of Education realizes parents and caregivers are partners in their child's education and is working on an online Transparency Dashboard created especially for them.

Parents and other caregivers of children from preschool through grade 12 are invited to provide feedback on Michigan’s new, online “transparency dashboard”  designed to show the performance of every public school in Michigan, including public school academies. The dashboard is currently under development by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). It is expected to be made available to the public by early 2018. 
The new dashboard 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. The survey allows participants to view components of the new dashboard, then answer questions about the way information is presented, the usefulness of certain features, and viewers’ unique interests. The Michigan Department of Education will use survey feedback to help shape the current and future versions of the dashboard so that it is helpful to parents in every community.
  • The survey can be completed on any computer, tablet, or mobile device.
  • The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
  • All answers will be confidential.
  • Survey must be completed by November 15, 2017.

Thank you for your time and sharing your opinion.
