Creating Lists and Mailing Labels

The Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) manages the official database of Michigan's educational entity directory information. This database is called the Educational Entity Master (EEM). The database is kept up-to-date by local school districts via their entity authorized users, who are appointed by their administrators. It includes administrators' names, school addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc.

The EEM provides the means for creating customized lists and data files that can be used to produce mailing labels from search tools in the database. Please go to the EEM and click on "User Guide" near the top of the screen. In the sections on Quick Search and Detailed Search, you will find directions as to how to perform a search and how to either print mailing labels from the results or download the data from your search to save your file.

This can be done whether or not you are logged in. It is available to the public as well as to entity authorized users.


  • Go to "Search" and choose "Quick." (This can also be done with the detailed search.) Select "ISD District". Click "Search."
  • Choose "Superintendent" at the next screen.
  • For mailing labels in Avery 5160 format, choose "Print" in that box.
  • For mailing label data, email addresses and telephone numbers, choose "Download" in Excel in the second box. Once you open the file, you will see email addresses and phone numbers to the right of the mailing label information.

After reviewing the EEM and the documentation, if you have additional questions, please send an email message to CEPI customer support at 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.
