Our Mission

CEPI’s mission is to coordinate collections, connections and reporting of education data in Michigan.

The Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) was established by the Michigan Legislature (Sect. 94a of the State School Aid Act) to coordinate the collection, management and reporting of education data, from early childhood through K-12 and postsecondary education, and into the workforce. CEPI facilitates efficient data gathering to reduce the administrative burden on reporting entities while ensuring student privacy.

Not only does CEPI help schools comply with federal and state reporting requirements, its sophisticated longitudinal data system connects the data in powerful ways to help parents, educators and policy makers make decisions that can improve student outcomes. One of the ways CEPI delivers Michigan education information to stakeholders is through the MI School Data website.
