Michigan's Top 10 Strategic Education Plan (MI Top 10 SEP) was updated and approved by Michigan's State Board of Education in August 2020. The MI Top 10 SEP 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. The MI Top 10 SEP 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.

PROMISING PRACTICES EXCHANGE
COMING SOON
MDE recognizes that contributions from our education partners are pivotal to reach the goals within the MI Top 10 SEP. The Promising Practices Exchange was developed as a repository to help share successful practices. MDE encourages all Intermediate School Districts, Local Education Agencies, Public School Academies, and education partners to submit their practices to the Exchange, so their hard work may be viewed and replicated by others. Accepted practices are vetted by content experts to ensure they demonstrate improved outcomes for learners.
