Special Education Data

  • Student Data Privacy

    Public Act 367 of 2016, Protection of Pupil Privacy, requires that the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) post on their websites a notice of the information collected for a pupil’s education records, including an inventory of all pupil data elements and a description of each pupil data element.

    Federal laws and regulations require states to monitor discipline data. Monitoring discipline data is important because exclusionary practices, such as suspension and expulsion, are often associated with unfavorable student outcomes. This series of videos helps explain why it is important and how Michigan collects and analyzes data.
