Fall 2021 Administration Update
MEMO #081-21: Fall 2021 Michigan Kindergarten Entry Observation (MKEO)/ Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) Administration
Section 104(4) of Public Act 48 of 2021, commonly known as the state school aid act for the Fiscal Year 2021-22, eliminated all provisions of the MKEO/KRA that affect all school districts, beginning October 1, 2021. The Michigan Department of Education has confirmed that the legislature’s intent by striking all references to the MKEO/KRA under Section 104(4) of Public Act 48 of 2021 was to allow for the optional administration of the MKEO/KRA in fall 2021.
While the requirement to administer the KRA is optional for the fall of 2021 per Public Act 48, access to the online KRA portal and the administration site will remain open. Districts, building administrators, and teachers will still have access to the assessment and will be able to download Individual Student Records (ISRs) to assist with informing instruction. Administration for the fall 2021 administration window will be voluntary only.
The KRA in MI Team is here to support anyone who chooses to implement.
Districts choosing to administer KRA for fall 2021 should contact Miriam White at firstname.lastname@example.org.
