Sending Scores Back Program for
Shared Educational Entities


The Sending Scores Back Program attributes student accountability to a school in the student's district of residence. Shared schools/programs electing to have school accountability reporting adjusted to have non-resident students "sent back" to be included in a school within students' resident districts may do so by applying annually to participate in the Sending Scores Program. The Sending Scores Back Program is optional. Sending Scores Back Program applications are no longer available for the 2018-19 school year.

To participate in the Sending Scores Back Program, an entity must have status as a Shared Educational Entity (SEE) or Specialized Shared Educational Entity (S2E2) in the EEM. Shared schools/programs exist when a consortium/ISD of member districts cooperate to provide specialized educational services/programming. Shared schools can be granted status as an SEE and shared programs can be granted status as an S2E2 to allow for increased reporting flexibility in the Michigan Student Data System (MSDS). These statuses function as a mechanism in state systems to allow for special reporting relationships to occur. These statuses allow member districts to report students of shared schools or programs directly to a shared school or classroom program, despite that school not belonging to the member district. The relationships among consortium/ISD member districts participating in shared educational services are governed by a cooperative agreement.
