    • Updating Demographics/Program Data for Assessment and Accountability
    • Submitting Section 23a Dropout Recovery Program Claims

    The 2015-16 SRM Collection will be open until Jun 30, 2016 for submission of 2015-2016 school year data.  It will reopen from the mid-July through mid-September 2016 as part of the Graduation Rate Appeals Window.

  • Graduation Rate Appeals Window:This window is your final opportunity to review and correct the data used to calculate your graduation and dropout rate in advance of rate publications. Please see the Graduation and Dropout Review page for additional information and guidance.
  • Submit enrollment and exit records between general collections:Districts may report students who enroll between general collections. Upon certification of a student's record, enrollment information will be updated immediately, district users will gain access to student history information, and the Primary Education Providing Entity will be updated accordingly. The reported As Of Date should be the student's enrollment or exit date.
  • Update student demographics/program data for assessment and accountability:

    The Michigan Department of Education (MDE), Division of Accountability Services (DAS) uses student data reported through the MSDS as the source for each district's student roster. In addition to the data submitted through the General Collections, districts may use the SRM to update or correct demographic information. To be included in accountability calculations, each SRM record must have an "As Of Date" within a specific date range and must be certified before the published deadline.
