Ready for College, Work, and Life?
Post-Secondary Readiness and Enrollment
Need to measure:
21st Century Skills.
Suspensions and expulsions more accurately.

Data needs to be measured consistently across all domains and across years.

As a high-ranking county overall, do not be blinded of the reality that many of our youth face.
Need to collect data for economically disadvantaged youth.

Must survey all youth in Washtenaw County.
Make these surveys systemic processes.

How can you, in your role, school, or organization, help create a safer community?
78.6% of students participate in a school-sponsored extracurricular activity,
while only 66.7% economically disadvantaged youth participate.

left side of dashboard
Green: We are 10%+ ABOVE the statewide average/benchmark.
Yellow: We are at or within 10% above the statewide average/benchmark.
Red: We are BELOW the statewide average/benchmark.

For economically-disadvantaged data (
right side of dashboard
Green: We are at the SAME level as the county-wide average.
Yellow: We are at or within 20% of the county-wide average.
Red: We are 20% BELOW the county-wide average.

LIGHTER shades of colors means we coded based on previous year's Washtenaw County data (instead of statewide data).
Understanding the Report Card
Trend Data
County-Wide Trend:
Looked at trends over the past 4 years (if available)

Economically-Disadvantaged Gap Trend:
Looked at whether the gap between County-Wide and ED youth increased or decreased

Arrows and Their Colors
Indicates growth, decline, or fluctuation.
Color tells you if the change is good (green) or bad (red), or if it's stayed relatively the same (yellow).
Some data do NOT represent all school districts due to surveying and reporting restrictions, such as certain data points from MiPHY and MI School Data.
Graduation By District
What's the Trend?
The same holds true for basic subject proficiency.
Test Scores
Of the 634 crimes committed by youth last year,
28% were violent
and 72% were non-violent.
