State Reporting

PENNSYLVANIA INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (PIMS) 

The Pennsylvania Information Management System (PIMS) is a joint effort of PDE and the LEAs. This statewide longitudinal data system, efficiently and accurately manages, analyzes, disaggregates and uses individual student data for each child served by PA's public education system (Pre-K through Grade 12). 

LEA PIMS Coordinators/Administrators should consult their LEAs ELL Coordinator to ensure that EL data reported in each snapshot is accurate. It is important that PIMS data be reported accurately by LEAs since it impacts accountability, compliance and funding.  
 

ENGLISH LEARNER REPORTING SYSTEM (ELRS)  

The purpose of the English Learner Reporting System (ELRS) is to collect information on language instruction educational programs (LIEPs) and ELs for the purpose of reporting data to PDE and the U.S. Department of Education.  To be compliant with federal reporting requirements as well as state reporting requirements, each year school districts, charter schools and comprehensive AVTS/CTC must complete the ELRS regardless of EL enrollment. LEAs are required to submit EL system data annually during the 30 day reporting window in March.
