The latest progress reports for Michigan's public schools are out.

The number of high schools not making adequate progress increased 9 percent, though officials say that's expected because the state changed its high school graduation requirements.

The Michigan Department of Education released reports for high schools and school districts in the morning. The data measuring adequate yearly progress in academic subjects is required by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

The main measure of progress is scores on standardized tests taken by students in several grade levels.
