Education Achievement Authority of Michigan Logo

The State of Michigan established the Education Achievement Authority of Michigan (EAA) during school year (SY) 2011–12 to function as a local education agency (LEA) that assumed the administrative operation of 15 of Michigan’s lowest 5 percent of persistently low-performing (PLP) schools. EAA designed the Pay for Excellent Performance (PEP) performance-based compensation system (PBCS) to award classroom-level teacher and schoolwide principal student achievement growth incentives, as well as compensation for demonstrated skills and knowledge, assuming additional responsibilities, and working efficiently in hard-to-staff schools. EAA anticipates operation of 48 schools from across the state of Michigan over the next five years.
