The Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI)
The Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) collects and reports data about Michigan's K-12 public schools. Our initiatives in data collection and reporting facilitate school districts' compliance with the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and the Michigan Department of Education's accreditation plan, Education Yes! CEPI is an office located within the State Budget Office.
State and federal law requires Michigan's K-12 public schools to collect and submit data about students, educational personnel and individual schools. These data are used to determine state aid payments, adequate yearly progress, accreditation, graduation/dropout rates, teacher qualifications and what constitutes a "safe" - school, just to name a few.
Districts report their data to CEPI via the Michigan Education Information System (MEIS).
