Data Overview

The financial data files contain data commonly reported for MI school districts including expenditure, revenue, and balance data. Data are sourced from the State of Michigan’s Financial Information Database (FID) and cover 2003-2004 to present.

The K-12 staffing data contain individual-level records on education personnel (teachers and other non-teacher employees). Coverage is EOY 2012 - Fall 2016. Available data reflect information about staffing demographics, assignments, and endorsements/credentials. Personnel from both private and public schools are included in this dataset. It is optional for private schools to participate in the data collection and therefore the data for this type of school is incomplete. The datasets cover both part-time as well as full-time staff from all schools in MI. The data also includes information on those who end their employment with the school system during the year.

The K-12 student data contain commonly requested longitudinal student-level educational data from the K-12 environment. Available datasets reflect information about K-12 graduation, enrollment, demographics, program participation, discipline, and course-taking. Only public school students are included in the data sets. Students attending non-public schools and students using a non-public residency code at a public school (i.e., home school and private school students) are excluded.

Available datasets reflect information about postsecondary student demographics, enrollments, programs, courses, cumulative progress, and degrees/certifications (referred to as awards).
