From the State of Michigan Department of Education:
The Annual Education Report (AER) provides detailed information on teacher quality, student assessment and accountability, and other educational information for schools, districts, and the state in one convenient place. The AER is designed to meet the federal requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) for an annual report. Local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools must prepare and communicate AERs using data results from the 2021-22 school year and related information found in the ‘Annual Education Report’ and revised cover letter templates located at MI School Data in the Annual Education Report section.
