Information Services - Data Collection

Education Personnel Information Management System (EPIMS)

The Education Personnel Information Management System (EPIMS) collects demographic data and work assignment information on individual public school educators. This information enables Massachusetts to comply fully with the No Child Left Behind Act by accurately reporting on highly qualified teachers. The EPIMS data also will be used to perform greatly needed analysis on our educator workforce that, over time, will identify high need areas, evaluate current educational practices and programs, and assist districts with their recruiting efforts.
