16 Michigan charters on new list of failing schools

Mar 31, 2018 by

Sixteen charter schools are on a new list of schools and districts that are subject to agreements with the state to turn around failing performance.

The Michigan Department of Education released the list Friday of 21 school districts that officials will begin having discussions with — based on poor performance on the state’s standardized exam. Charter schools are considered school districts in Michigan.

State law gives the MDE the option of closing failing schools. However, State Superintendent Brian Whiston’s approach has instead involved entering into partnership agreements with school districts that have failing schools.
