Seven schools have been released from the state’s list of lowest-performing schools. But 124 schools are still on the list.
The Michigan School Reform Office released a list of the bottom five percent of schools based on academic performance today. Thirty-one schools were named "priority schools" for the first time. The rest have been on the list before.
Most of the schools on the list come from Detroit, but the list also includes schools in Benton Harbor, Flint, Grand Rapids, and the Education Achievement Authority of Michigan.
