The Pennsylvania Information Management System (PIMS) is a collaborative effort of the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and the Local Education Agencies (LEAs) across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. PIMS is a statewide data system that will efficiently and accurately manage, analyze, disaggregate and use individual student data for each student served by Pennsylvania’s Pre-K through Grade 12 public education system.
PIMS serves many purposes. These are to:
- meet the current PDE and federal reporting requirements;
- improve education decision-making through the use of high quality data and decision support tools;
- provide longitudinal tracking of particular individual and subgroup education progress over time and across LEA’s, and;
- report timely and accurate education data through standardized and ad hoc reporting capabilities.
