In 2011, just 20 percent of the students at Nolan Elementary-Middle School in Detroit were proficient in communication arts, only 2 percent were proficient in math, and the majority of students were performing two or more years behind grade level. Like many other persistently low-achieving schools in urban centers, Nolan desperately needed a different system for a better outcome. Michigan's governor charged the EAA with transforming the lowest 5 percent of the persistently lowest-achieving schools in the state while simultaneously developing a new approach to educating 21st century students. In 2013, at the end of its first year in turnaround, 71 percent of the students at Nolan achieved one or more years of growth in reading and 61 percent in math. Nolan ranked third out of 124 schools in individual student growth according to data released by Excellent Schools Detroit.
