Disproportionality Reporting

Identification, Educational Environments and Discipline

Hello and welcome!

As part of the State Performance Plan, the Michigan Department of Education Office of Special Education (MDE OSE) teamed up with Wayne State University’s Center for Urban Studies to develop resources for intermediate school districts (ISDs) and member districts to help interpret and analyze data reports. These reports are intended to assist the ISDs and member districts to gauge the extent of which students of particular racial/ethnic groups are being disproportionately represented for special education services.
