OSCEOLA COUNTY — As area students receive their report cards for the end of the marking period, area school districts are also receiving their scorecards from the Michigan Department of Education.
The Department of Education grades schools against a five-tier color-coded system. From highest to lowest, the ranks are green, lime, yellow, orange and red. Statewide, most districts are yellow, which holds true within the Mecosta-Osceola Intermediate School District. All the member districts are yellow with the exception of Morley Stanwood Community Schools, which is red, the lowest possible ranking.
