Data Coordinator (PIMS/PennData)
PIMS (Pennsylvania Information Management System) is the Pennsylvania Department of Education's statewide longitudinal data system for improving data capabilities by enhancing school districts' capacities to meet student-level data reporting requirements and provide robust decision-making support tools.
PIMS is used to collect educational services and special education services information provided by LIU 12 for our 25 public school districts, 2 area vocational-technical schools, and 6 charter schools.
The PennData (Pennsylvania State Data) Center and
Applied Research Laboratory of the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) perform data validation on the files submitted to PIMS throughout each school year.
What is the Data Quality Network?
