How to Review and Update the Educational Entity Master

EEM entity authorized users are responsible for keeping their entity records up-to-date. As the official directory of educational entities in Michigan, the EEM links all educational data collections in the state of Michigan. Updates include changes in the name of a school, contact information (e.g., administrator, address, area code, email), grade range adjustments, as well as requests for new code numbers and permanent closings of schools or other entities.

With accurate and up-to-date EEM records, the management of data and data submission operates more smoothly. In addition, the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) and the Michigan Department of Education use contact information from EEM to communicate with education administrators statewide.

To identify the current authorized users for the EEM for your district or educational entity, please email CEPI Customer Support at cepi@michigan.gov or call 517-335-0505 x3. Please provide your name, telephone number (including area code and extension), district code, and district name (if applicable) along with your message.
