• Michigan Schools "Beating the Odds"

    There are real success stories in Michigan school buildings that are considered by some to have traditional barriers to academic achievement. Over 100 schools in Michigan are finding ways each year to overcome the identifiable risk factors to low student achievement, such as low economic status, race and ethnicity, or proficiency with the English language. Beating the Odds Schools are a special subset of Reward Schools recognized annually and are provided to fulfill previous requirements set by Michigan's ESEA Flexibility waiver.
