State releases scorecards for area schools Updated: Wednesday, August 13, 2014 LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Michigan Department of Education has released the scorecards for area schools.The state says about 30 percent of all Michigan public schools met targets in all areas, except having a wide achievement gap between their highest- and lowest-performing students. One-third of public schools at risk of being placed in Michigan's turnaround district improved enough last year to fall outside the bottom 5 percent. But 60 new "priority" schools are now in the bottom 5 percent.The schools will be placed under the supervision of Michigan's School Reform Officer, who can impose an intervention model.
