In June 2019, the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) published new Academic Acceleration Policy Guidelines for ALL Michigan schools. This includes the guidance about the following: single subject acceleration, whole grade acceleration, and early entrance.
Acceleration is an effective research-supported approach to meeting the needs of advanced learners. You can find the policy guidelines, questions and answers, documents for parents, and other related links below:
