Compensation Transparency Reporting

Introduction

Michigan Education Dashboard

The Michigan School Data Dashboard is a "one-stop shop" for data and information about Michigan's public schools, districts, and regional education agencies. This dashboard makes it easy for the public to find information about schools, and to compare one school or district to another. To access the dashboard, click here.

Section 18 (2) of the Public Act 94 of 1979, The State School Aid Act, has been amended, which requires each school district and intermediate school district to post certain information on its website within 30 days after a board adopts it annual operating budget or any subsequent revision to that budget. The Annual Budget & Transparency Reporting is an opportunity to communicate with our community on how we utilize the resources that are provided to us.

The following information is required to be posted on our website:

  1. The annual operating budget, subsequent budget revisions, and a projection of revenues and expenditures for the following year.
  2. Using data that has already been collected and submitted to the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), a summary of district or intermediate district expenditures for the most recent fiscal year for which they are available, expressed in the following two (2) pie charts which were provided for the general fund of the district or intermediate district by the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI):
