Michigan has returned to a "Meets Expectations" Level One Determination. This is the result of hard work on the part of literally hundreds of people around the state. Your roles in improving data quality as well as consistent compliance with IDEA requirements have been important in helping Michiganattain this status. Thank you.As you know, the work is already underway for the next SPP/APR cycle. Your continued efforts are critical, so that we can support increasingly successful outcomes for Michigan's students with disabilities.Thank you again.
