Setting up Budget Transparency and MI School Data Links

Public Act 413 of 2004 (Enrolled House Bill 5475) requires each intermediate school district (ISD) to post certain information on its website by December 31 of each year. Foxbright's  'Budget Badge' will link website users to the appropriate pages for transparency documents and school data.

MI School Data Link

The MI School Data website was recently updated and links to district school data pages have changed. Foxbright recommends checking MI School Data links to make sure they are still current.

  1. Go to the MI School Data website
  2. Use the search bar to search for a district or school.
  3. Click the share button to get a short url pointing to the specific School Data report.
