Michigan's Top 10 Strategic Education Plan

Michigan's Top 10 Strategic Education Plan was updated and approved by Michigan's State Board of Education in August 2020. Michigan's Top 10 Strategic Education Plan aims to provide focused direction to Michigan's education community in support of all learners. It is designed to concentrate energy and resources, strengthen operations, and set success measures to ensure that all stakeholders are working together toward common education goals. Michigan's Top 10 Strategic Education Plan has a mission, vision, guiding principles, focused goals, and metrics for each goal area to help monitor Michigan's educational progress. Collaboration among the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), education partners and stakeholders, business and industry, and communities is needed for the plan's successful implementation.
